Names of anything in our world are useful to different degrees during different times of our lives. Toddlers are often called upon to display their inordinate intelligence by naming animals, when shown pictures of such animals.  They also shriek “Elmo!” (or some vague approximation) when confronted with an image of the lovable, red Muppet.

  For many years, Life in the Boomer Lane smugly told people that she didn’t watch network TV.
