I agree with previous posters that one-syllable names can encompass a very wide variety of styles. When you say male names, do you mean exclusively male names, or just names used on males? For instance, Sloan is a 1-syllable unisex name, and Chris is a 1-syllable unisex nn, so would those be included, or are we talking more about Luke and Kurt?

1 Syllable names on males always make me envision football players, even more so with a one syllable last name. I remember hearing my friends talking about Brad Pitt and I chimed in "Isn't he a football player" man did they get a laugh out of that lol, I don't know my actors well. Brett Farve is another good example.
1 syllable male names just seem more jockish and I'm not a fan of those since I never really liked jocks....
For the misspelled = learning delays, it's probably because they just don't know how to spell their name, especially when they pick a word name like River and change it to Ryver but pn it the same. It must be confusing for the child, but I don't think it aims directly towards boys... I know my cousin Sumer had a little trouble understanding that the word summer is spelled with 2 m's. I don't know if it caused any huge learning delay, but a minor bump in the road.
The only correlation I know I've read in articles is that A names tend to get better grades than C and D names. However, this I believe could be inaccurate since A names are very popular, which skews the results.
