Baby nameologist in my hometown charges 1,000 to name your baby and claims she will find the best name with the most positive associations for future success of your child. Her top girl name pick was Ava.
I know an experienced and very reputable teacher. She strongly feels that certain names were consistent with certain personalities in the classrooms. Every boy Ian she had was off the charts, geniuses in math. She found Ryans were always overly rowdy and difficult, and just forget the name Damien apparently.
And I admit that there are some name associations I have of my own. I have known a lot of Kevins, every one of them insincere and self-centered in nature. Perhaps a coincidence, I know. (Sorry to any Kevins out there!)
My daughter has name that means strong, and she is exactly that. It makes me wonder!
Do you agree or disagree that associations to personalities should be considered when choosing a baby name?
