Future parents may want to be careful naming their children after a
new study revealed a poor first name could have major consequences.
Scientists determined the results by using two different methods. One
included sending out 47,000 emails to German online daters without
photos, while the other method gave people the same location and age but
different names to determine who they wanted to date.
Names such as Charlotte or Alexander, carrying the highest
valence – or intrinsic attractiveness – received 102 percent more pages
views than those with the lowest valence such as Kevin or Mandy.
