I have a personal theory that I have always held to be true and I would like to share it with all of you. I would love to hear your thoughts on the
matter. This may be something that most people agree with and have already thought, or it could be something crazy, I don't know.
I believe that those that have the same name have the same personality characteristics. For example, men named Chris all have similar
characteristics. It is true with any name.
I have found that the spelling of the name matters. For example, a Brittany is different from a Britni, or Britney.
It doesn't matter what the true name is, only what they go by. For example, my brother's first name is William, but he goes by his middle name.
His middle name is true to his personality but his true first name is not.
Now, as with anything, there are always people who are an exception to the rule. So I am not saying this is true for everyone.
I have my own characteristics that apply to different names that, honestly, I'm afraid to share because I don't want anyone to be offended if they
don't like the characteristic. But I would like to hear your thoughts on the matter to see if they match up to any of my ideas.
I'm not sure why this theory holds true, at least in my life. I have discussed this with some other people before and they realized it was true in
their own lives and our characteristics matched up. I have an idea that a certain name brings up certain thoughts in our mind when we hear it. If
this theory is true for everyone, then perhaps children grow up with people around them having a certain expectation of them and they grow into
adulthood living out this expectation.
There was a study done about children who had "unusual" names. They found that names like Blaze, Danger, etc ended in adults who had problems with
the law. Now, this could be due to many factors, but it basically proved that the children grew up to mimic their name. I can try to find the
article if anyone is interested.
But, if children named Danger can grow up to become a problem for the law, then why can't children named Rachel have their own unique characteristic
that they embrace while growing up.
Again, I am not saying everyone named the same acts exactly the same, but they do have at least one linking characteristic.
So what say you? Do you find this to be true in your own life? Do you think this is a quacked out theory? I would love to hear your experiences
