It is known that many factors in our upbringing influence our personality, from the warmth and severity of our parents to their generosity and aggressiveness.

But a fact that goes unnoticed many times is the consequences of this particularly important gift that they gave us: our name.

Parents are usually the ones who name their children. For many it is a test of creativity or a way of expressing their own personalities or identities through their offspring.

But probably what they don’t take into account is that the choice you make about your children could influence how others will view you and ultimately the kind of person that child will become.
