The Lord will often "code" people in dreams. For example, you may have a dream of a person you went to school with or knew when you were a child. You know this is not a literal dream of that person so consider the following: What is a personality trait of this person? Do you have someone in your life currently with this same personality, stronghold or sin? The meaning of the name may be significant. It could also be someone with the same name. For instance, if you have a dream about someone you went to school with named Sue, that is no part of your life at this time but you have current friend named Sue. The dream can be about your current friend Sue.
For instance, I was going through a difficult time and the Lord gave a dream that I had a baby and named it Noah. Noah means - "rest" And Noah could walk faster and talk better than any other baby's could. I knew the Lord was telling me that if I would quit being anxious and "rest" in the Lord - It would give me God's supernatural ability to move past and get through this situation quicker.
Another common theme for people "parables" is that a person from your past may be used or "coded" to represent a person you know now. For instance, you dream of an old friend from school named "Kim" you have no interaction with that person now but you have another friend "Kim" in your life now. The Kim (your old classmate) in the dream would be a representation of the Kim involved in your life now.
