10 Names That Will Make You Say “Ew.” These are the most unattractive male names…
“What’s in a name?
That which we call a rose by any other name
would smell just as sweet.”
A person’s name is more than just a label. It’s a gift. It’s something given to us by our parents or guardians and should be a way for them to show their love and support.
That’s why new parents have to be so careful as to what they’ll name their baby. Of course, you want the first name to go well with the last name, but it’s so much more than that. A name is a part of our identity. It is how we see ourselves and how others see us. A name can have a significant impact on our lives. It can affect our self-esteem, our relationships, and our opportunities.
According to ExO Insight:
Proper names affect how people treat us and how we feel about ourselves. This fact was confirmed by research in 2000 finding that people who disliked their name tended to have a poorer psychological adjustment, due to a lack of confidence and self-esteem.
The advice given by ExO Insight explains that parents should be aware of the implications of giving their children a certain name. Names that have a nice flow to them, or “sonorant” names actually enhance likability and social inclusion. Whereas names that are rare and uncommon might lead someone to be outcast by his/her peers. However, there is research to suggest that an unusual name could encourage creativity and originality.
