Can a person's name influence the outcome of their personal life?
Certainly it does affect your whole personality,and determines your attitude which attributes towards your personal or even professional life.
That question has a double answer, no and yes.
No! In cases where the people, about 95% of human, are NOT chosen to survive the termination of civilization their names has little to do with their personality. Somewhere in Bible prophecy - maybe the books not in the cannoned books - I recall reading that a day would come when man would be given names without meanings. The reason is because they are still imbedded in the school of their earthen incarnations.
Yes! The 144,000 and at least half of the "number no man can number" (Revelation 7:1-9) are chosen to survive civilization's end in Armageddon (Revelation 16:15-26) and their names should reflect the person they are. However, in some case they have to change their names for it to reflect the person they are to be.
My birth name, Elijah (Almighty god is I AM THAT I AM) reflects the name common to "the father" in Matthew 28:19, Alfred [wise counselor] Alexander [defender of man] defines the responsibility of Elijah in Malachi 4:5-6 while Junior [the latter] reflects what Moses was told in Exodus 4:8 although my first name is after my dad and my middle is after his dad. My "new birth" name, NatureBoy [living with one foot in civilization and one in the self-reproducing environment, Isaiah 7:14-22] was given to Nat King Cole's manager to record as prophecy of who I am.
To some extent I’d say yes.
I used to have a job where part of my responsibility was to look through resumes and narrow down applicants to a very small number. If there were two applicants with nearly identical experience, credentials, and nothing else that really made one stick out over the other... the name actually sometimes stood out. So for example, if I was looking at a Caroline and a Kaerahlyne... well, guess which one I’d choose to send through for a professional position (again assuming everything else was pretty even).
I also think that if a child has a very unusual name the subjection to bullying from peers at a young age could play a part in shaping their self-esteem which might carry over to later in life as well.
On the flip side, having an unusual name sometimes sticks with people and makes you more memorable (almost every time I meet someone new and they see the spelling of my name they say “oh, what a unique/unusual spelling” and I know they associate me with something a little bit different).
But I chose to give my daughter a very traditional name with a traditional spelling because I feel it’s better to let her personality set her apart, if she wants it to, rather than her name.
Here is a funny one. Back in early sixties there was still a resentment of Germans. I know it was like twenty years after the war but life was like that.
So I have a German last name. So I was called a Kraut. It probably influenced me.
But after thought and everyone knowing I was adopted. That changed.Then kids knew I was Italian by birth origin. And I was called called a WAPP.
Now keep in mind that back in those days it just didn't hurt our feelings. Heck we still played Cowboys and Indians, with real cowboy kids and real "indigenous peoples".
My name certainly influenced my life and all to the enrichment. Thanks family for giving it to me.
