Personality Traits

Unless you wait until the child is several years old so you can be aware of its personality you cannot possibly pick a name to match. Clearly there are a few names which could match a person for example Joy would suit a happy person but most so called name/personality matches have been made up. There is a website which will give you name choices for certain traits or physical features but it is only a bit of fun. Here's the link if you want to play the game Renamer Website

The name you pick can have an effect on the namee's life, mainly as a child is growing up. There have been experiments carried out which suggests a child with a desirable name may get higher grades than a child with an undesirable name. This is a terrible indictment of teachers but they're only human
