Naming is an Art of the Kithain.

Overview

Naming is the Art of True Names and the power of words. It is one of the most insidious Arts known to the Kithain, as while its low levels are deceptively non-threatening, a master of Naming can easily cause irreparable damage. Overly frivolous uses of Naming are not taken lightly by the nobility, who swiftly bring justice to those who subvert its effects. Naming is one of the rarest Arts in changeling society, as its practice is restricted by the Crystal Circle. Long ago, the Art was developed by the Eshu, but limitations and bans have led its practice to be almost exclusive to the Sidhe - a slight that the Eshu are not inclined to forgive.
