Name in dream meaning | Dream interpretation
Every name has a meaning; if a person who is unfamiliar to the situation is seen, research the name
If you dream that you forget your name, or the names of others, you are under stress at work or school and feel overburdened with work. It may also indicate that you have forgotten your true self or your family roots.
To hear your name being called, indicates that you are in touch and in tune with your spirituality. It also makes you aware of your own uniqueness and highlights your individuality.
To see a familiar name written in your dream, symbolizes the way you feel about that person. Your intuition about them may turn out to be true. Sometimes names in dreams are ways of reminding us of people in our lives.
If you don’t recognize the name, consider whether it sounds similar to the name of a person you know, or one from a TV show or movie that has been on your mind. Also see “Name Tag”, below
If someone calls you by the wrong Name in a dream, it is an unfortunate omen for your love affairs.
1. A need to reacquaint oneself with sense of individuality (dreamer’s name).
2. Too many burdens (to forget a name).
3. Pleasant news is on the way.
Dreaming of someone’s name can be an obvious reference to someone you know or it could be wordplay.
The name, as in Matt, could be a doormat, or the name Mary, could be referencing marriage and commitment issues.
If you call someone you know by a different name, then consider the quality or your association with that name. See Nickname.
1- Our name is the first thing we are conscious of possessing.
It is our sense of self and of belonging.
If we hear our name called in a dream, our attention is being drawn specifically to the person we arc. There is a suggestion that parents name their child so that the meaning of the name carries the biggest lesson that the child has to learn in life.
For instance, Charles means ‘man’, and Bridget means ‘strength’.
2- When we arc aware of other people’s names, we are probably also aware of the qualities that person has and it is those qualities we need to look at. When the name of a place comes up in a dream, we are considering the way we feel about that place, or something we know about it.
There may also be some word-play on the names.
3- Spiritually, when something is named it then has form and therefore meaning.
The name allows us to link with the Essential Self.
The meaning depends on the circumstances.
If you dreamed that you couldn’t remember your own name, or that of someone you know well, the dream is warning you against an illicit affair or a questionable deal that you would find difficult to justify.
To be called by a wrong name in a dream portends grave difficulties on the personal side of life, but they will ultimately lead to better understanding.

If you hear or see your own name, it means pay attention.
If another person’s name, represents qualities you associate with that person and need to actualize within yourself. Look up name under Alphabet and Numbers for numerological meaning.
In dreams, you often hear the sound of your name; this suggests the opening up of possibilities for greater wisdom. Hearing someone call your name may also suggest that you are currently in the spotlight in your waking life.
If you are called by a name you do not know or recognize, then this may be an aspect of your personality you are trying to repress.
