What kind of world would it be if everything didn’t have a name?! Imagine having to point at whatever you wanted in the super market. African parents would be unable to send their kids on errands since things didn’t have names. All in all, a world without names would be chaotic for sure. Here are names of some common things you didn’t realise have proper names:
