The book is grounded in psychoanalytic thinking, but it is also placed at an intersection of several fields of thought: linguistics, anthropology and literature. The focus of the book is the primary importance for the constitution of the child's subjectivity of the first or second names chosen by the parents, the scaffolding of the child's future identity and a legacy offered and attributed to children by those who precede them. This book is above all the result of psychoanalytic reflection developed through the clinical work of a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst of children and adolescents.
