    A name is forever. How you name your child sets the course for their entire lives. A name can be something to be proud of or ashamed of.

    The naming of a child is a most profound spiritual moment. They say that naming a baby is a statement of her character, her specialness, and her path in life. For at the beginning of life we give a name, and at the end of life a “good name” is all we take with us.

    Recently, Msn-lifestyle did a report on which names were the most unattractive and attractive. The results were somewhat predicable. Names like Alexander, Peter, Mark, and Emma were attractive. Names like Kevin, Chantal, Claire, and Marvin were deemed undesirable.

    This left us asking, if you can predict someone’s attractiveness with a name, can you also predict failure with the name? So we set out to find this out. Thanks to a grant from the Foundation for a Better Tomorrow, an ambitious research project was undertaken.

    Here are the names most likely to doom your child to failure.
    (In no particular order)

    Girls
    Imani
    Ebony
    Shanice
    Aaliyah
    Nia

    Malik
    Trevon
    Jamal
    Maurice
    Jalen
    Darius
    Xavier
    Barack

    Why avoid these names?
    These names have been proven to:

    Have a lower credit score.
    More likely to end up serving time.
    Be a burden on welfare
    Do illegal drugs
    Trade food stamps for rims.
    Not be attractive
    Not get an education or at most settle for trade school.
    Not have a driver’s license and drive without insurance.
    End up as the subject of a TLC television special.

    A name defines a person’s essence. Choose carefully.
