  • The juice of memory rises. When it spills will be the time of reversal....Mighty shall be the roar, violent the rending, joyous the release.

I don't think it will matter. Remember, your name is not part of you. 'A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet'. Your soul/spirit goes to heaven, not your actual body, not yet anyway.

Angels are messengers, not actually people who die and go to heaven. Just what I was always taught.

wacko.gif I definitely agree with star-child.  Of course, I cannot remember the names of things as it is.  I do believe (without much evidence) that people can look however they want to look, in the "between."  So, they might not look as you remember them.  Also, they may be friends or relatives from other lifetimes, and you may have to expand your memories before you recognize them.

I hope that my NAME means something in heaven!

Being raised Catholic and saying all those Rosaries should amount to something!

Well, I have a problem. I was named after my grandfather. He was the mayor, and doctor of a small town, and had a part in some big oil discovery (no money).

Nonetheless, a historical state bronze marker was dedicated to him, and I gave the delivery speech impromptu. I never knew him- he died early.

My dad had nearly the same name. He died in disrepute with his family.

My sister says if we live the good life, our soul has all this business wiped away, and we start anew in heaven. I doubt I want this family name wagging after me forever.

If I was born, and christened, let it be so again.


BTW, I have enjoyed reading the thoughts gathered here.

Names are just sounds we use to recognize certain objects. When I think of someone usually a picture of them pops up in my head. In heaven you could just send images of people instead of names.

It's the symbolics of language.  If I say tree....... well, what is a tree?  Tree is just a word which has come commonly to represent an item/person.  I could just as easily say "Baum" (German for tree), and those that understand German will relate that to tree.  

And no one will have the same idea as to what "tree" is either.  They might see a Christmas tree, an evergreen, a pine, fir, fig, willow.  

Words are just symbols which have come to commonly represent a picture.

Until next time,

I wonder what language will be spoken in heaven? Latin? Hebrew? perhaps greek?

Or maybe its a special "angelic language".

Who says we'll even need language.  No physical bodies, remember.
