Intelligent Design - Naming

An example of intelligent design is where Adam named the animals in Genesis 2:19.

"And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every owl of he air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof."

A name of an object reflects its characteristics and the ability to name something reflects an ability to taken dominion over it.

Does your house cat give you a name?  Do plants name animals? Do people name people? Do light bulbs name electricity? What does God name in Psalm 147:4 or Isaiah 40:26?  Do you see any parallels with naming and the grammar stage of the Trivium? Do you see a line of authority and dominion?
