So what is in a name?

So many theories, so little time to read through them all. Sorry if this is out there already. There has been quite a bit of discussion about Jacob and Aaron lately, as it feels like we are growing closer to having a sense of purpose and identity revealed. Lets not forget the Shepard name, Thomas, Christian, Ray (great thought on the ‘illumination’ synonym Dabs!), Charlie(s), etc.

  1. Mikhail Bakunin fits as well.

    I think it might be significant that some characters have biblical names (Aaron, Shepphard, Jacob, etc) and some are named for philosophers. The philosophers dealing with the self while the bible deals with a higher power.

  2. What a great line by Widmore, when he joked about the name Bentham, and told how Johns Parents had a sense of homor when choosing his name. Great line, something that would come out of Bens mouth.
