What's in a name?

To some extent, a person's name can affect how they are perceived and treated by others. Research has shown that people often make assumptions about others based on their names, such as their race, ethnicity, or socio-economic status. However, it's important to note that these assumptions are often based on cultural stereotypes and are not necessarily accurate. Ultimately, a person's behavior and character have a much stronger impact on how they are treated by others than their name.
