99% time, parents guardians people who name us put lot time effort into it so they do feel sense ownership over name even though it actually has nothing do them.

About the sentence

to put time/effort into sth

If you say that you have put a lot of time or effort into something, you mean that you have spent a lot of time on something, or it has required a lot of effort. e.g. I had put a lot of effort into the painting so I was very disappointed when my teacher said it was rubbish.

to have nothing to do with sb

If I tell you that something has nothing to do with you, then I am saying that it does not involve you, or is none of your business. It can also be a useful way to say that we are not responsible for something, e.g. I don't know who smashed the window. It's got nothing to do with me.
