Just a word about Williams - I've only known a few but they've all been rather odd. Have I just been unlucky? Far be it from me to ostracise a whole name category - would any Williams or friends of Williams like to come forward to defend their case?
Interesting that you mention that.. I once saw an email listing a whole bunch of male names and their typical personality types, and most of them were surprisingly accurate! I wonder why that is. And to answer your question, I have known a few Williams in the past and come to think of it, they were a little off.
Ah! So it's not just me then! It has to be William as a first name, by the way, so anyone with William as a surname won't do. Not that I have anything against Williams, you understand, but I do when they send lewd emails (that's another story..)
The "generalizations factor" in this thread is as bad as the thread about "how all people who use avatars are ugly" (or along those lines).
I have several "Williams" in my family and have known several. There are perfectly normal and "regular" individuals among them. There's an "off" one here or there; but I've noticed there are more "off" "Tom's" than "William's" in my life. Maybe I should start a thread about "Tom's".
