Want Your Kid to Succeed? Give Them a Simple Name and a Middle Initial


You want your kids to succeed in life, right?  Here are two NAMING tips to give them a slight edge.
 
1.  Give your kid a MIDDLE NAME.  Or at least a middle initial.  A study out of England found that people with a middle initial get treated as HIGHER STATUS. The researchers think it's because initials make people subconsciously think of the initials in prestigious titles . . . like Ph.D.
 
2.  Give your kid a name that's EASY TO PRONOUNCE. A study out of New Zealand found that people whose names were hard to pronounce had LESS CREDIBILITY than people with easy names.
