    In Mexico, when a huge tv novel hit is over, and ppl have kids, they name the kids after a character in the novel!
    I must agree, some names DO sound stupid, the typical american names. I cant think of one right now, but i'll get back to you on that.

    On TSR, I always thought this. Like, if someone has things that aren't letters in their name, they tend to be morons, and if they even have characters that aren't on the keyboard (copyright symbols, etc), it's a certainty. But what of real people?

    Why do I ask? I got one of those chain emails today, which as always ended with a command to put your name if you agree with it ("murder is bad", "drink-driving isn't good", etc). The people who sign these aren't usually the brightest either. Looking at the sorts who did:


    And so on for about another 500.

    Kym? Erika? Deanne? I have to say that personally, I have never met anyone intelligent with "Traci" as a name. So are these people idiots, or just American?

    Not that anyone should ever be judged by names, or anything.
    :rofl: Some of those sound made up, you know new chain letters aren't popular unless there's already 500 proud american patriots to have signed it... and : So are these people idiots, or just American? - kinda synonymous...

    I always had a name theory that people with the same name could, for the most part, turn out similar. For example, people that share my name have often been described as being like me. Equally, in my experience, Claires have always been bubbly and girly, Racheals attractive and bright, Kevins a little odd, Amys bubbly but then either twisted or *****y.... But the ultimate name for seeing this, is people called Barry. Now I'm sorry if this is your name but... well, forget the but. If this is your name, I'm sorry. I'm really really sorry. No really. You couldn't help becoming who you are, it was all down to your name. No brains, no wit, no future. Really, I'm sorry. Have a nice life, even if the bars and the chain-link fence spoil the view.

    Yeah it's sad. I don't agree.

    But i agree that I can't help but think people with certain names sound thick. I go to a selective school and I don't know a single person called "Richard", "Hayley" (or Haley) or "Danielle". There's a huge number of Simons and Chrises though.

    I don't want to sound prejudiced because I always avoid being prejudiced as much as possible... but it's certainly interesting.
    :eek: my name is Hayley! is that a thick persons name? I never thought it was..

    Being called Colin is a curse

    Famous Colin's

    Colin Montgomery - wearer of silly trousers

    Colin, the idiot caretaker in the britass empire

    Co-lin Powell, who can't say his own name

    Colin, the guy from the fast show who tries to chat up girls at parties by wearing a luminous condom, turning off all the lights and wobbling it about

    there are others.....i will remember....

    EDIT - Colin, the guy from Love Actually who goes to America to get laid....


    Think yourselves lucky, you could be called Colin.

    You wonder why I abbreviate it to Col-C.....

    Seconded.

    I tend to find it worse when people change their names, so Tracey becomes Traci and so on. And when people add their middle name to the first to make themselves look better, it never works.

    A great beginning from someone whose name is " 2 + 2 = 5"! :rofl:

    not that I think you're an idiot of course...
