Mail Online reported that a Wayne State University study on names found that people named Adam live longer than people named Daniel. It’s not even an insignificant amount of “live longer” either. The study shows that people with with a name beginning with an A live up 4 years longer than people whose name begins with a D.
“This study suggests names have more of an impact than we’ve ever given them credit for,” said Dr. David Holmes of Manchester Metropolitan University.
The scientists believe the reason behind the increased longevity is related to school grades. People who get A’s do well in school whereas D is close to failing. People whose name begins with a D may suffer from low self esteem as a result which makes them more susceptible to things like cancer. It is, once again, a testament to the importance of names. Any Daniels out there who want to call me for advice on how to change your name?
