I guess this would rule out all those odd names with apostrophes (some have two?). And, I didn't see my name up there - oh, well. But even though I have a feminine name, I still have a reasonably impressive resume. I found this article interesting; it looks like the team did a good bit of research on the subject.
I once knew a woman named Wilhelmina. She vowed that if she had a daughter her name would be Ann. It was, with out even an "e" on the end.
My name is Anita LeMoine-Acosta. Middle name Marie. I work on my genealogy in my spare time. People whom name their children hard to pronounce names are not thinking of the future of their children.
I think this study is a waste of someone's time!
Oh c'mon. I know kids with many of those names up there and they lack in the categories they are under. My name has always been difficult along with my sister's but the 2 of us have always been some of the top of the class. In all my years I was always a teacher's pet and always seen to succeed and become a leader. Since day one I have been considered intelligent and wise so this is a load of rubbish to me. I think those with easy to pronounce names end up being more popular in school not more successful in life. It's those who work hard that succeed in life.
I have 2 famous names. Maiden name-Jefferson. Married name-Hoover. I did well in school with my Bname!!!
Typical of social research. You have not isolated the variable. The name selection tends to reflect the background of the parent(s). Unusual names often come from the mistaken belief that my child is really special so s(he) will really shine with a bizarre name. Hard work rather than an unusual name will make your child shine in the classroom, on the playing field or at a job.
They listed it as an AOL contibuter, because it starts with "A"; and they want you to associate them with success.
Tell this to Donald Trump. And forgive me for saying this but how about Kim Kardashian. I wonder what the writer's name of this article is. I did notice it was revised January 2011 so did we discuss this last year?
