The proper names by themselves should not have meaning, since by definition they are unique, with the exception of those that come etymologically from one who has it.
Why are proper names written with the initial capital letter?
In the classical era everything was written in capital letters . The lowercase is an invention based on the Carolina letter of the time of Carlo Mango, born by the need to create an easy-to-read and write alphabet. Then it was written in lower case, but the capital letter was kept to head some words; in German, all nouns, while in Spanish and other Romance languages, only proper names.
This convention dates from the twelfth century , when the capital letter marked the beginning of a chapter or paragraph and facilitated the identification of the people cited in transactions and documents. In the fifteenth century , with humanism, the use of the capitular was imposed to distinguish proper names from common ones that are the same (Rosa / Rosa). Proper Nouns examples
