3.203 A name means an object. The object is its meaning. (“A” is the same sign as “A”.)

Not the most helpful parenthetical comment, surely. Perhaps again the striking or puzzling remark is a sign of irony or something unobvious going on. See PI § 39 and 40, where the meaning of a name is distinguished from the bearer of a name.
