Babies are usually named according to family, cultural, racial or religious guidelines. Parents take great pride in naming a newborn, and the ceremony is usually cause for a big celebration. Little attention is paid to the significance of choosing one name over the other. So, is there more to a name than simply an individual’s identification?
What would you say if we told you that people with common names are far more likely to be hired than their unique named counterparts? Sounds unbelievable! There’s more, if your name is easy to pronounce, people will favor you more, Whoa!
Research has shown that something as simple as using your initial can make you seem more intelligent than others. There is also the phenomenon known as the “Name-Letter Effect” where we favor alphabets that are also present in our name.
And probably the most astonishing fact, If your name simply sounds noble, you are more likely to work in a high ranking position.
Research shows that a name can be directly associated with behavior, academic and professional success. This proves that a persons name can influence factors that seem far beyond what seems likely.
