Q: In your opinion, how significant is someone’s name. Can someone name affect their life?

A: I think it can be significant because life & death is in the power of the tongue. Proverbs 18:21

Even sometimes in the bible when God wanted to change someone’s Faith He gave them a new name. However if someone is given a name they don’t like, it doesn’t have to ruin them.

Proverbs 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.

They can create an identity for themselves with their own actions, and then either God or humans will give them praise and a new name or nickname.

Isaiah 62:2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.

Revelation 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Another example is Saul who changed his own name to Paul when God called him to preach the gospel to the Gentiles.
