Reply to: Names in Myths by Rosie
I think it's pretty universal, and not just in fiction. Little children are often thought to be "too shy" to say what their names are when asked ... I'm sure it's that same feeling of "this is mine and you can't have it" that the myths and stories echo. (And of course,knowing their names does give the adult world power over them!)
