Individuals are given stock names to reflect communal conformity in society rather than the individual. There are names like "Harmony" or "Equality" followed by a number to decipher the individual. Collective 0-0009 happens to be the poster person for collectivism. Occupations also serve as a collective identification. Equality, for example, is a Street Sweeper which gives his life more meaning but only from a collectivist point of view.
