Do you think children's names affect what kind of job they will have?

    Apparently my first child, Esmeralda, will grow up to be a hooker because of her name.

    I don't think any of my three kids will have a hard time finding a job.  They are not odd, made up, funny, etc.

    I don't, but I know this post is going to be flooded with responses that say otherwise.

    well some names do sound more like stripper or porn star names but it really just depends on the person.

    its funny how many criminals I come across with names like Justice and Innocent.

    I think names can help/hinder with people's preconceived notions. 

    Really, I think a stellar candidate is going to stand out no matter how many silent vowels and apostrophes their name has. However, I do think a poor name could have the potential to slightly  hinder a child professionally if  they are struggling as is.  

    I do no think that just because you name your child Day'Zee because that is their aunts name backwards, they will be a stripper, but I do think that the type of parent who thinks Day'Zee is a good name might not consider future implications for their child of crazy names.

    There was actually a study published about this - I will have to  look for it, but it basically said that yes, your child's name can significantly affect their professional life.

    I knew two Angel's in highschool, of course they were far from.

     I have pasted on hiring people before b/c I could not pronounce their name.

    Eh im still indecisive, I feel like times have changed enough for it not to matter, but at the same time there will always be that one HR recruiter/realtor who wont call back a person for a job or apt.
