We are talking about names! Yes names, leave now if you don't care. I was inspired to do this because of a podcast I listen to from Mom Stuff Never Told You from How Stuff Works (search on itunes if you want to listen to them). Now I don't remeber much from the podcast but hear are some highlights.
*Most popular female CEO name was Debra (both spellings)
*When written on a resumes people with more black sounding names (like Reshawda [sorry if that is spelt wrong]) have a higher chance of being looked over or ignored than a more white/american name like Molly.
*Boys with names that could be both girl and boy (like Taylor) are more likely to act out in class.
--I second this! I know a dude named Taylor and he is not...well nice
Yep that's all I remember! Fascinating isn't it. Just look up the Stuff Mom Never Told Me podcast and search for the one about names to learn more.
Sorry this is so short, I completely forgot I was suppose to post today.
