words are just noises

I recently read a quote from Chris Martin about names and it made a lot of sense to me. I have often quoted: "words are just dust" and thought about what that means exactly (which may have unknowingly come from these lyrics "Words are just dust in deserts of sound"). Now, here is something else to analyse and see where/if it fits in your world.

"People make a big fuss over names: names of babies, names of albums, names of bands, names of people. The thing that everyone forgets is that a name is just a noise, and if you like it, then fuck what everyone else says. That's what it's called. So there’s nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that’s what you want to call your baby. It’s no weirder than Sarah, it's just that people are more used to it."
- Chris Martin.
