See also D.A. Carson, "Exegetical Fallacies" which develops this
same thought under the heading "The root fallacy."

Are you saying that it is a fallacy that it is possible that a name that is
given can have a specific meaning? That if a parent says they named their
child to associate their identity with a particular idea is lying? That the
accounts of the naming of Jacob, Moses, Jesus, etc are intrinsically false
because they come under the "root fallacy"? What a self-important view.
