I learned that "nemo" meant Nobody in Latin today...

This was what I contemplated all day:

If “nemo” means nobody, then what does Finding Nemo mean? What is Pixar trying to convey by naming Nemo “nemo”? Clearly, Nemo is a somebody. At the same time, however, Nemo is a nobody for the majority of the movie. In reality, he is a nobody to everyone but his father. Having said that, Nemo becomes somebody. This would mean that the moral lesson of the movie isn’t “Fish are friends, not food”, nor is it to respect our oceans and the sea life. Instead, the moral lesson could be that no matter how insignificant you feel- no matter how much of a nemo you feel you are- you are always going to be somebody to someone. Or maybe, it’s a combination of all three moral lessons. *insert feelings of an epiphany*
