What's in a Name?

We've talked about the power of words. Now we want to tell you about the power of names?why people with some names succeed, while people with other names fail.

In LiveScience.com, Andrea Thompson quotes researcher Joseph Simmons as saying, "People tend to gravitate toward life outcomes that resemble their names. So for example, we know now that people named Jack are more likely to move to Jacksonville as compared to people named Phil, who are more likely to move to Philadelphia." They are also more likely to choose romantic partners with similar names (so President Jack Kennedy was destined to marry Jackie) and to buy products that resemble their names.
