And this is the wrong place to ask. Dynamic typing and naming objects
dates back to the precursors to LISP in the mid 50s. You should be
asking the people who made that decision.
By the same token, have you asked anyone why C/Java/etc. have static
typing and name locations? It's an equally valid question.
