Names Name Names

i attend an actors class, we are handed a script, the names of the characters are voulu (strained)
the playwright is intent on catching our attention by these in your face name of his characters
I voice this, but am drowned out by the assemble of  'actors', are they just darlings, God bless them.

I go away, tail between legs, but am reminded of  Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, T. S. Eliot’s The Waste Land,  for example, who offer quasi-naturalistic representations of the modern alienation and fragmentation of Dublin and London in order to suggest the “deeper meanings” organized by their aesthetic forms and language. Names are connotatively rich in these works—Stephen Dedalus, Tiresias, the Fisher King. 

My name? oh that, it's  'Wounded Knee', my partners? her name is 'Turtle Cove' and you can't get more quasi naturalistic and suffused 
with 'deeper meaning' than that.
