Are you happy with your name?

Has your name helped or hurt your chances of securing a raise, promotion, or a new job?

Social science tells us that a foolish name bestowed on an infant frivolously can haunt that child for the rest of his or her life, snatching away good opportunities and leaving poverty and destitution in its wake. Some people can carry any name they choose with style and influence, while others have to go so far as to change their names in order to simply make a living.
