    I want to delete my account as well. I am shocked at the attitude on these forums. No diplomacy. People just declaring that names are "ugly." Like what is this, 8,000 Amanda Byneses registered here?...

    Totally valid. Speaking of being less classy, what you highlighted was harsh of me and not classy to say. I sincerely wish I had phrased it less defensively. You're right. It's the Internet that does...

    Freakonomics. Perhaps others, but that book/movie for sure covered that exact topic. "Black"-sounding names (however the employer determines that) don't get call backs.

    All such good points. I love genealogy too. I would want to hope that with how well documented we are in the modern day, stuff like that can be kept pretty obvious. We have tracked people developing...

    I might be inclined to think they rhymed at first glance, but then I would probably make the assumption that you DIDN'T want them to rhyme and I'd say HELL-en-uh. Well, if I could think that fast...
