An MIT cognitive scientist has released a study in how people’s names have an impact on how others judge their attractiveness. When men in the study were assigned names with a stressed front vowel they were rated as more attractive as opposed to a stressed back vowel. In other words, good news for Dave, Craig, Ben, Jake, Rick, Steve, Matt; bad news for Lou, Paul, Luke, Tom, Charles, George, John. In women the effect was reversed. Good news for Laura, Julie, Robin, Susan, Holly (boosted sex appeal) whereas Melanie, Jamie, Jill, Tracy, Ann, Liz, Amy had the opposite. Source: The Atlantic
