I am not sure if this phrase is the same as "The name is what matters", otherwise I am not quite sure about another possible meaning:
"You are the snot of Time, but, once exhaled, O, Miracles!
You build a spine and stand you tall and Name Yourself.
What matters it the name. You are my sequel on the earth.
The sea is mine. The land belongs to you."
("Old Ahab's Friend, and Friend to Noah, Speaks his Piece", Ray Bradbury). Nota Bene: Ahab is the captain of the whaling ship Pequod, from Herman Melville's Moby Dick.
