What’s in a Name?

A name is how you identify yourself, and how others identify you. It can have a very strong impact on how you are perceived and how you act. In fact, humans are not the only creatures to identify each other by “names” – animals such as dolphins also use unique names to identify each other. Choosing a name can be incredibly difficult – whether or not it’s for a real person, a fictional person in a book, a pen name, or simply an alias. Perhaps one of the reasons it is so difficult is because it will be something that someone will carry with them their whole life.  People look for names that have meanings special to themselves or their loved ones.  Finding that perfect name means alot of research, and looking at the meanings of the name can help in this research.

And Makoce are the protectors of new born of all Sentient beings until each of the being become the ultimate form. It then become the best buddies of only one belief. Protector of life.
