Abstract

Characteristics connoted by first names were explored in 7 studies. Four factors were identified: Ethical Caring. Popular Fun, Successful, and Masculine-Feminine(Study 1, N = 165). Men's names connoted more masculine characteristics, less ethical caring, and more successful characteristics than didwomen's names (Study 2, N = 274). Nicknames connoted less successful characteristics. more popular fun, and less ethical caring characteristics than did given names (Study 3, N = 289). Androgynous names connoted more popularfun and less masculine characteristics for men and more popular fun, less ethical caring, and more masculine characteristics for women than did gender-specific names (Study 4. N = 378). Less conventionally spelled names connoted uni formly less attractive characteristics (Study 5, N = 145). For menonly, longer names connoted more ethical caring, less popular fun, more successful, and less masculine characteristics (Study 6, N = 620). More anxiety and neuroticism were attributed to those with less common names and moreexuberance was attributed to those with more attractive names (Study 7, N = 137).
