Have you ever met someone with a personality that just doesn’t fit with their name? This is usually thought to be a bad thing, but having a mismatched name and demeanor can actually be good. A calm, low key person could benefit from a more exciting name—a calm, low key person with a similar name could end up being forgotten about easily. The same could be said for the opposite. A loud, in-your-face type of personality doesn’t need any extra help getting noticed. A simple name with classic style might be perfect to tone down a louder personality.
