name drop

Name-dropping is the direct mention of a character's name through dialogue, inner monologue, message, or narration. This narrative technique removes the ambiguity surrounding whom the character is referring to in a given situation. Even when there is no doubt, the mention of someone's name is useful for indicating personal attachment. To know of one's name is evidence that the two characters know each other. Furthermore indicating a name provides information to an unfamiliar viewer.

This theme is often utilized in scenes with crowds, and is particularly common in comics.
