I've been fascinated by names for as long as I remember. I see your argument, and I respect your thinking, but I think there's a bit of a clue in the bit about John Doe and john as a generic term for a man who pays ladies of the night. I believe John became so common (from children being named for Biblical Johns and then after their fathers, grandfathers etc.) that it came to mean a generic man. John or Jack is a traditional "hero" name in folklore. John Bunyan for example. Jack the Giant Killer... And Jack is also a card. The name John is far less common now among children, while Jack/Jackson has been popular for a while. Jack has a jaunty sound that John lacks. Still, as I said, I'm fascinated by names and naming. Our son is a James; another fine Biblical name.

This is well penned and a clever theme to use as framework for your dissertation. Certain names have been called out as having some kind of divine connection with both prophecy and discernment - John is one of the most common. I think this would have made for a more interesting read had less time been spent creating lengthy listings and more time spent on expanding on your counter argument as to what Satan tends to do to diminish their importance. Well done and thank you very much for sharing it.
