Dream Dictionary The Biblical Model | Vincent Wienand


Every name has a meaning; if a person who is unfamiliar to the situation is seen, research the name

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton


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

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous


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.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball


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.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett


Seeing or hearing a name can be just an inconsequential dream event.

If the name seems to have significant meaning, consider the context and what the name means to you personally.

Saying someone’s name can mean you’re focusing on that person for some reason, perhaps with the intent of communicating with them.

Someone saying your name can represent perceiving or imagining them communicating with you or their focus being on you in real life.

Someone calling you an unpleasant name could represent a feeling or fear of being disrespected or rejected somehow.
