​Have you read the book - Coraline - ​written by Neil Gaiman?

This is a quote from the cat in the story to Coraline.

​“What's your name,' Coraline asked the cat. 'Look, I'm Coraline. Okay?'
'Cats don't have names,' it said.
'No?' said Coraline.
'No,' said the cat. 'Now you people have names. That's because you don't know who you are. We know who we are, so we don't need names.”

​We do love to give things​ names. My cars have all had a name.
