QW 013112 “The A Name”

The article on which I had a Skype lesson is interesting and I found it’s worth being shared here. It’s about the influence that persons’ names could have on their lives. It says: Researchers state that choosing appropriate names for babies has a good effect on their future, making a child’s life easier although a name is not an instant avenue to success. Yeah, so far, what those scholars have found seems kind of generic and nothing new, at least to me. However, the following part reads sort of eye-opening: A previous research showed that those whose initials are letters at the beginning of the alphabet (such as A and B) are often associated with being at the “top” or "first” in class and get more of their teacher’s attention. Isn’t that surprising? And it continues like: These kids are usually seated in front of the classroom where they get to study better receiving more attention of teachers, and eventually, more likely to be successful in academia. Wow! Is it an empirically proven fact? Doesn’t it give a ray of hope to me with the last name “Ayako” whose initial is the very first alphabet “A”?

Here’s another thing coming, readers. The researchers also claim that girls with feminine-sounding names are more inclined to take English courses rather than Math and Sciences. Oh really? I can’t possibly recall having been asked to participate in the survey that the researchers conducted, but they actually checked on me? Nah, unlikely. Besides the possible argument whether Ayako is really a feminine-sounding name, I would conceive a name starting with “A” has something to do with the inclination toward English learning. I’m basing my argument on the fact that I’ve known not a few English teachers whose names start with “A” such as “Aiko”, “Akiko”, "Asuka”, "Akemi” and the like. Does “The A Name” have something to do with the passion for English learning and teaching? If so, I’m one of those who have passionately and enthusiastically devoted their lives into English learning and teaching while proving such an intriguing and seemingly plausible hypothesis. Is that it, “The A Name” folks?
