All the names in Anthem represent the very extreme Socialist ideology of the state. The names all imply conformity to the system and ideology that this system demands. Note the implicit "collective" ideas behind each name. There is no individuality rather than an underlying statement of conformity. The names personify the dogma of the state.

Iā€™m wondering, why then is Liberty 5-3000, being a fairly minor character, the only one with a name representing individuality?
