About This Quiz

Everything has a label in this world. Honda is the name of a car brand, while Coach is known for jewelry, coats and purses. And when it comes to humans, we have such labels too; only they're called "names." Some of us have common names, like Mary, Tim, and John. Other people were given exotic names, like Kali, Aisha, and Giselle. But behind these "surface" names lies a secret name that none of us are familiar with. It's a label that reveals more about our hidden identity, and one that has power over other people in this world.

The world of spies and secret agents is an excellent analogy for this. Spies often have "cover names" that hide their real identity, because if someone were to find out their real name, the persons with the cover names could find themselves in great danger. Now, we're not saying that all humans are spies, but imagine a world where it's dangerous to reveal your name to other people. They might use that information against you. For this "mysterious" quiz, we encourage you to use your imagination. Tell us more about your personality and the real you so we can unlock the answer to your hidden name!
