What does your name say about you? Have you figured it out yet? It may not be fair or right, but people judge you when they learn your name. You name tells strangers a lot about you, and these impressions are sometimes hard to shake.
I hate to admit it, but I have judged people on their names before. This has happened, in particular, when someone had a name that was associated with someone I didn’t like in my past. It’s not fair, but it happens. Luckily, I think we can all get past these name judgments over time, but they really shouldn’t happen in the first place 🙂
And on the other hand, I do think people have judged me based on my unusual name. I’m not a “Carrie,” and I don’t think some people know what to do with how I pronounce my name. I do correct them (nicely), and I can’t help but wonder if it starts us off on the wrong foot.
