An interesting article in the New York Times about names and how they may or may not affect us as we grow up. The article mentions several past studies that found that kids with odd names were less popular in school and got worse grades. (According to the same study employers tended to dismiss resumes of oddly-named candidates more frequently.)

But more recent studies have found that this is not the case, indicating perhaps that individuality has become more valued over the years. 

Do you have an odd name? Did it affect you growing up? Did you think about the effect your children's names would have on their lives?
