I found this quote in an article. It's pretty neat.

In Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner's 2005 bestselling book Freakonomics, the duo explored how much names really account for. It turns out, though there are many confounding factors, first names can be an indicator of someone's socioeconomic status, aspirations and identity.

Now, your name could reveal one more thing about you: Who you're voting for.


If you go to the link, you can find the link to the test, and see if your name predicts you accurately. Mine does not.

My full name predicts correctly, but my shortened (preferred) name does not.
