In esoteric thought, names are an integrating expression of the horoscope (49). There has been a great deal of speculation about the symbolic elements entering into the composition of names: letters in their graphic or phonetic
aspects, similes, analogies, and so on. Piobb, for instance, has suggested that the
name Napoleon is Apollo in the Corsican pronunciation of O’N’Apolio (48). The
question of why a given name should determine the destiny of one individual but
not of another is something which lies beyond the scope of this work. Here we
must limit ourselves to describing the rational basis of the symbolism of names
and its connexion with the Egyptian idea of the ‘power of words’ (as described in
a poem by Edgar Allan Poe). Given the symbolic nature of the Egyptian language,
it follows that a name could never be a product of chance but only of the study of
the characteristics of a given thing, whether the name in question was common or
proper. The name RN (signifying a mouth over the surface of water) represented
the action of the ‘word’ upon passivity. Concerning personal nomenclature, the
Egyptians believed that their names were a reflection of their souls. This gave rise
to the belief that a name could have a magical effect upon some other person. The
equation of name with character (and destiny) had its repercussions also in descriptive names, such as that of Osiris, which means ‘he who is at the top of the
steps’ (the steps, that is, of evolution); or that of Arabia, signifying ‘he who
walks in silence’. Onomatopoeia was another highly important source in the
genesis of language and its ideographic representation, whereby a given being is
characterized by one of its essential aspects—as the lion by its roar, for example:
or RW in Egyptian (19). Popular works on occultism which suggest symbolic
implications for certain proper names, as in other cases of vulgarized interpretation, have some roots in authentic symbolism but they may also fall into the trap
of being too hard-and-fast about the true scope of symbolism. Language has, in
the last century or two, reached such a complex stage of development that the
applied symbolism of etymology is subject to innumerable errors.
