Weird topic, but it’s something that just crossed my mind.
There are certain names that I’ll hear people introduce themselves as, and I almost unquestioningly don’t like or distrust that person, for no other reason that their first name strikes a chord with me.
One said name is Peggy. I hear that name and immediately have a problem with a person by that name. One of my managers at my last job was named that, and I immediately distrusted her, then she actually proved herself not to be trusted. And after dealing with her, I thought back and almost anyone I met with this name was untrustworthy.
I also had a problem with the name Brandon. I’ve met some exceptions since, but I had problems with several people growing up named Brandon, so it was just a name that immediately struck a chord with me for a long time.
So what names do you have that just turn you off from certain people? On the obverse, what names actually warm you up to certain people faster?
