    Lightbulb Easy to Pronounce = Good Name?

    Hi!

    Does how easy we can pronounce a name affect how well we like a person?

    I am doing a study, and hope you could help me by rating these names out of /7 for ease of pronunciation:
    Samuel /7
    Forbes /7
    Xu /7
    Hoxha /7
    Deutsche /7
    Cao /7
    Adams /7
    Kenyon /7
    Khan /7
    Montgomery /7
    Rodriguez /7
    Benson /7
    Guo /7
    Smith /7
    Nguyen /7

    Where we have:
    0 = Impossible to pronounce
    1 = Extremely challenging
    2 = Difficult
    3 = Slightly hard
    4 = Fairly easy
    5 = Easy
    6 = Very easy
    7 = Easiest name to pronounce

    Thank you for your participation!

    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire
