Do Girly Names Obstruct Scientific Progress? (via 2Blowhards) "A press release is circulating wildly about a new study by David Figlio (an economist), which suggests that girls with more feminine-sounding names are less likely to pursue math and the sciences compared to girls with less feminine names." Hm. Note the small sample size.
Names Commonly Found in Romance Novels. Seems like historical romance authors have a really strong preference for Alexander/Alexandra.
