name

name
The designation of an individual person, or of a firm or corporation. Word or combination of words used to distinguish person or thing or class from others. Wilty v. Jefferson Parish Democratic Executive Committee, 245 La. 145, 157 So.2d 718, 723.
A person's "name" consists of one or more Christian or given names and one surname or family name. It is the distinctive characterization in words by which one is known and distinguished from others, and description, or abbreviation, is not the equivalent of a "name."
