There are two metaphors that I like. The one I like best won’t make sense for a while, until we talk about scope of variables. But here is the one I like second best: Sometimes when you take a bus or a taxi, there is a little frame up in front that looks like this: Your driver’s name is: John Smith The phrase “your driver’s name is” is like a label for this frame, and it corresponds to the name of a variable.
