Does having a certain name brings forth a stereotype?

For example:

People named Bob are seen as white-collar workers struggling to make ends meet.

People name Samantha are seen as a snotty little know it all.

People name Josh are seen as very into sports and works out at the gym constantly.

People named Michelle are seen as a nerd and loves to read thick books.


These are just examples so they are probably not correct. As a matter of fact, they are not correct but I just want to give an example of what I meant.


What do you think?

Well, yeah. If they didn't then the main character for 'Gone with the Wind' would have been Martha instead of Scarlet.

A website stated for my name "plays WOW and drinks Monsters... still.

Steve - Everyone knows a Steve. Love em' or hate em, he's f*ckin' Steve. Usually hangs out at college parties even though he quit his 2nd semester. Borrows your PS4 game, never gives it back. Doesn't chip in for pizza, eats most of it. Drinks all the beer. And you gotta drive this mother fucker everywhere because he doesn't have a car. His clothes are the most expensive thing he owns. Always high or drunk (or a combination of both) You know, that Steve.

I think so but I also have a bias thanks to the Simpsons.


Both are definitely at the pinnacle of redneck names tho.
