To be honest the first time I heard this word, I didn't know what it meant. I'm not sure I am really clear on it now. However, this word, NOMENCLATURE was applied by an editor of some repute to my TRUE story which follows:
My husband is a pastor and teacher and our last name is Jones. When our first son was born and we were deciding what name to choose, my husband kept pushing for Martyn Lloyd, after a well known preacher, teacher and writer in England, Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones. I wouldn't agree because I didn't think it was fair to have a child try to live up to a name like that. So we decided to go with our Welsh heritage and chose GLYN.
When our second son was born, we went through the same debate, but I still wouldn't agree. So this time we chose the good Welsh name, OWEN.
A few years later when Dr. Martyn Lloyd Jones retired from his pulpit at Westminster Chapel in London, his successor was appointed.
His successor's name? ...Rev. Glyn Owen!
THIS IS AN ABSOLUTELY TRUE STORY!
