Names DO make a difference

Vaguely interesting Obs story on first names and how they influence lives. It includes this quotation from Professor Albert Mehrabian (whose surname indicates Armenian ancestry).

'A name is part of an impression package,' said Mehrabian. 'Parents who make up bizarre names for their children are ignorant, arrogant or just foolish.'

He has a point.
