Everyman = Every Man

I know you are all sick of hearing from me, but I wondered if anyone else thinks that the main character is called Everyman because the play is meant to be a message to every person. Everyman is more a representation of human kind as a whole rather than just a single man. Or at least that is how I see it. What you all think?

Yeah, Everyman is a name that represents every single person, which makes him easy to identify with. I think that was what the author was going for.

Yes Lorin, I studied this play in depth last year, and Everyman DOES symbolize every man. Everyman experiences things that EVERY MAN goes through. Good observation.
