What’s in a name?

Consummatum est: this bill is ended,
And Faustus hath bequeathed his soul to Lucifer.
But what is this inscription on mine arm?
Homo, fuge! Whither should I fly?
If unto God, he’ll throw me down to hell.
My senses are deceived, here’s nothing writ:
O yes, I see it plain, even here is writ
Homo, fuge! Yet shall not Faustus fly.

The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus – Christopher Marlowe, c. 1590
