Not sure if this is the right place for this, and if it isn't, well please move it ot the correct place.
I had a discussion today about people naming their kids, and whether or not it makes a difference in their life. Whether or not their names make them more successful in life, or not. Does it even make a difference?
I will give a few, real life examples.
1.) Dad names two sons, their names are : 1. Winner 2. Loser. Winner became quite the criminal and "unsuccessful" in life, while Loser became a moderately successful human being, graduating from college, and making a decent living as a middle class american citizen.
2.) A women names her child "Shithead"(Please don't get me in trouble for usin the word) and of course pronounces it in a very urban way, making sound different. The kid was made fun of, and eventually had a so called "unsuccessful" life.
3.) A women names her daughter "Temptress" and the child at age 15 was bringing grown men in to her home, and pleasing them. Resulting in a pregnancy at around age 15 for this child, and a fatherless, unloved baby.
My conclusion is that the names don't usually matter. The names only show what the parent is like. For example, in story number one, the women was obviously a moron for naming her child that, and was not a good parent. I don't think the actual name itself has much of anything to do with how they turn out.
