Often the name has a strong influence on the fate of a person. Children with strange names are given offensive nicknames, teased by their peers. As a result, they grow up withdrawn or, conversely, learn to fight back from childhood and become strong self-sufficient individuals.
A beautiful original name helps a person through life. Ever since school, he is singled out from the crowd. Yes, they demand more from him, but at the same time the child learns to be responsible for his actions, so as not to disgrace the name. Conversely, a too common name introduces the child into the category of "average". If there are five Katya in the class, they are perceived as a group, a single whole. The child gets used to "not sticking out" and all his life does not commit real deeds. Of course, a lot depends on the personality traits of each. But all the same, it is easier to break through in life with a beautiful name that others pay attention to.
If a child is bullied from childhood because of his name, this can provoke two scenarios. The first is that the child learns to defend himself, becomes a leader, and the children simply do not dare to call him names. He has a sense of his own dignity, he behaves in such a way that no one has a desire to laugh at him. Acquired in childhood, this personality trait is very helpful in adulthood. Such people achieve success, occupy leadership positions. Conversely, if a child cries, runs away from peers, an offensive nickname can stick to him for life. She will sink deep into the subconscious and interfere with competently expressing her opinion, taking the initiative, and insisting. And how to be strong when a nasty nickname is constantly spinning in your head.
The name gives a person a lot, but he himself can achieve even more. Do not blame all the failures on a dissonant or too common name. This factor can only be an excuse for a weak person. If you are not, consider what is holding you back from becoming successful. Most likely, in addition to the name, this list will include laziness, inability to defend one's own opinion, inability to communicate with others, etc. It is with these shortcomings that you should work, and not rack your brains over why your parents didn’t bother to call you something more picky.
