The Big Speach: Nomen est omen

Nomen est omen.

Roman proverb.  "Names are destiny", or more correctly, Names are omens.  Taken from the play Persa in which a character says, about a slave girl for sale who is named Lucris (Profits), "Nomen atque omen quantivis iam est preti".

So, any merit to that claim?

Oddly, while I had this teed up to run today prior to today, on the day that it became clear that Justin Trudeau would become the new Canadian Prime Minister, it seems particularly appropriate.
