Abstract

Shakespeare famously raised that question in “Romeo and Juliet”, where Juliet dismisses the importance of a name: “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”. And yet, the name (in their case their last names, which identified them as belonging to enemy families) mattered enormously and eventually contributed to their tragic deaths. In medicine, misunderstandings about names can have similarly fatal consequences.
