Does a weird name damage your chances of success? NYU sociologist Dalton Conley says that children with unusual names may learn impulse control from being teased or interrogated about their names, saying that “they actually benefit from that experience by learning to control their emotions or their impulses, which is of course a great skill for success.” But he also says any effect would be very small and basically amount to the effect of being raised by parents who would choose unusual names.
