Every name has a meaning; if a person who is unfamiliar to the situation is seen, research the name
If you dream that you forget your name, or the names of others, you are under stress at work or school and feel overburdened with work. It may also indicate that you have forgotten your true self or your family roots.
To hear your name being called, indicates that you are in touch and in tune with your spirituality. It also makes you aware of your own uniqueness and highlights your individuality.
To see a familiar name written in your dream, symbolizes the way you feel about that person. Your intuition about them may turn out to be true. Sometimes names in dreams are ways of reminding us of people in our lives.
If you don’t recognize the name, consider whether it sounds similar to the name of a person you know, or one from a TV show or movie that has been on your mind. Also see “Name Tag”, below
If someone calls you by the wrong Name in a dream, it is an unfortunate omen for your love affairs.
1. A need to reacquaint oneself with sense of individuality (dreamer’s name).
2. Too many burdens (to forget a name).
3. Pleasant news is on the way.
Dreaming of someone’s name can be an obvious reference to someone you know or it could be wordplay.
The name, as in Matt, could be a doormat, or the name Mary, could be referencing marriage and commitment issues.
If you call someone you know by a different name, then consider the quality or your association with that name. See Nickname.
1- Our name is the first thing we are conscious of possessing. It is our sense of self and of belonging.
If we hear our name called in a dream, our attention is being drawn specifically to the person we arc. There is a suggestion that parents name their child so that the meaning of the name carries the biggest lesson that the child has to learn in life.
For instance, Charles means ‘man’, and Bridget means ‘strength’.
2- When we arc aware of other people’s names, we are probably also aware of the qualities that person has and it is those qualities we need to look at. When the name of a place comes up in a dream, we are considering the way we feel about that place, or something we know about it.
There may also be some word-play on the names.
3- Spiritually, when something is named it then has form and therefore meaning.
The name allows us to link with the Essential Self.
