This chapter discusses the concept that proper names are not semantically empty denotations, but characterize in many, often subliminal, ways their denotee. The discussion is driven by computational experiments on using just a name to guess the linguistic and cultural background of a person and the positive or negative polarity of a fictional character's role.
