The title of the story is Names/Nombres. This relates to the story because Julia and her family are from the Dominican Republic. So when they came to Ellis Island they changed their names from more Spaniard names to more English names.
These elegant British names would all feel at home lighting the stage in an Oscar Wilde play, or gracing a rural stately home. In fact, stick "Lady" or "Lord" in front of any of them and see how they just roll off the tongue.
