What is the importance of a name?

I read this on the Aish website:link

The naming of a Jewish child is a most profound spiritual moment. The Sages say that naming a baby is a statement of her character, her specialness, and her path in life. For at the beginning of life we give a name, and at the end of life a "good name" is all we take with us. (see Talmud – Brachot 7b; Arizal – Sha'ar HaGilgulim 24b)

Now i wondered if there are more reverences to the importance of giving/having a proper, fitting, good name?

    I don't understand what you seek. What's a "reverence" in this context? – msh210 Jan 22 '17 at 17:55
