I think creative naming is a part of southern culture to a degree, adopted and imported by the AA community. The problem with it as I see it is that there is no one to identify with, no sense of belonging, no continuity. When you are named after a father or uncle, mother or auntie whom you know, love and and respect, it matters.
To illustrate, adolescent psychiatrist offices are filled with rootless white Jasons and Jareds and Justins, none of whom have any known relative with those names.
