He is a terrorist.  He is a criminal.  He is an extremist.  But he will, when I speak, be nameless.  And to others, I implore you, speak the names of those who were lost, rather than the name of the man who took them.  He may have sought notoriety, but we in New Zealand will give him nothing. Not even his name.

-- New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, in an address to Parliament after the slaying of 50 in an attack on 2 mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, New York Times, 19 March 2019
