… by any other name?

Let us consider for a moment the divine power of naming, which according to the Bible we humans have as gift. It is worth noting that in the Scriptures God rarely names, though he does sometimes call by name.[1] In Genesis 1 God gives the names day and night, sky, land and sea. It can be argued that in saying for example “let there be light,” God named streams of photons “light”, but the text does not say that.
