On Names and Name-changing in Judaism
In the holy books of Judaism, it is written that the name by which a person is called constitutes a person’s soul and vital force. The Bible provides us with a template for the act of naming; in fact, many scholars believe that the act of naming is a repetition of God’s act of creation.
