Your name alludes to your essence. That's why you carry a name. When you are called by your name, there is also a connection to you, but it is more functional. The calling of the name is a 'step down' from having a name...
The calling of the name is associated with the presence of the person, not how he is unto himself...
We need to reflect on the truth – the fundamental reality of having a name. It is not a convention. It is a reality. It is a statement that this person has a real presence in the world...!
Then there is the level of 'calling a person by name'.
The 10 commandments are divided between those concerning, 'man and his fellow', (which corresponds to being called by name), and those that are between 'man and his Maker', (which correspond to having a name).
The basis of man's obligation to others, starts with his obligation towards himself and his Maker.
'Calling by name' is a metaphor for the 10 sphirot in atzilut.
