High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - July 26, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Person s name May influence Success in life High Point Enterprise Friday july 26, 1974 7a husband trapped in Loveless marriage by Ana Honig new York was a Rose is a Rose is a Rose a but what you Call your baby May give him a bad name for the rest of his life. Sure proud parents mean Well when they assign a name to their offspring. But studies show a name is a lot More than a Label. It May determine what others think of a person. It could even decide social or business Success or failure. Even experienced schoolteachers Are apparently swayed by their students names. Psychologists Herbert Harari of California state University and John w. Mcdavid of Georgia state University tested such teachers on their grading of essays. They found essays written by children named Elmer Hubert or Bertha got lower grades than those written by children named David Michael Adelle Lisa or Karen a even thought the work was comparable. What s More names seem to conjure up definite stereotypes. Photos of Strong virile men were assigned two listed names like Bart and Mac by subjects in tests run by prof. James l. Bruning psychology department chairman at Ohio University and William Albott of Topeka state Hospital Topeka Kan. Even Young children in the third to sixth grades tied names like Aldwin and Winthrop to passive figures and names Sargent and Baxter to Active Ball playing running figures. The Bruning Albott team described still another Experiment in the publication Quot human behaviour a to show How a name May decide the Impact of a person on those around him students were Given material showing a speakers name qualifications and background. For half the class the name was Given As Adam Williams for the rest it was Myron Williams. Results a a Adam Williams tended to be seen As consistently More Active masculine dominating competitive cold and responsible than the same person who was introduced to Myron Williams a drs. Bruning and Albott observed. Interestingly they note a person s name May affect his own activities. When parents assign a name they also assign their expectations of the child s behaviour. The Ashanti of West Africa believe that the Day of the week on which a child is born determines his character. And he is named according to his Day of birth. And a study of police records there showed boys whose names indicated aggressiveness and troublemaking were guilty far More often of violent crimes such As assault and murder than those whose names suggested passivity. A a it was concluded that the tribes beliefs about the connotations Between the Day of birth and personality May effectively enhance certain traits that otherwise would remain latent a drs. Bruning and Albott said. Unusual or disliked names also May have bad effects. Two different studies indicate that boys with Peculiar names suffer emotional disturbances More often than boys with common names. The ways of parents with a new child a name vary the world Over. The Zuni indians like to name their children after the first thing they see after birth a a favorite name is Tiwa which Means a a onions a. The arabs look to the Koran for inspiration a Abdel Nasser Means a a servant of the victorious one. Some hindus chinese and africans give their youngsters ugly names to deceive demons into thinking the child is unloved and not Worth bothering with. They choose names like Klesa a a a pain a and Kiowa a dear Ann i am a successful businessman in my mid 40s, married to a woman i have not loved for a Long time. Our children know it. I have offered a generous settlement beyond what the Law requires but my wife will not let me go. The last time i packed and left she attempted suicide and was hospitalized.

I be sent my wife to a psychiatrist. He says he can to reach tier. The children Are married and live nearby.

I observed several no smoking signs and selected the seat directly behind the Driver because i was sure no one would have the nerve to smoke near him. No sooner did we leave Hancock when the Driver lit a cig Aret i believe my eyes. He coughed and hacked ail the Way to Marquette. At that Stop a fellow got on sat himself next to me and started to smoke immediately. I knew i would lose my breakfast if i did t get some clean air soon. I swallowed hard tapped my seatmate on the shoulder and said a forgive me if i suddenly puke All Over you because your cig Aret smoke is making me he gave me a Peculiar look and leaped into the seat across the aisle.
