What’s in a Name?
Names are interesting. Back in the day, surnames indicated your profession – Baker, Miller, Carpenter, etc. Apparently, Buzz Aldrin’s grandparents gave way to the famed astronaut’s true calling. They were named Mr. and Mrs. Moon. Trippy! It makes sense that names pull back the veil on who we are and what we’ll do, especially in this case.
There’s a phenomenon known as “nominative determinism.” Well, it’s more like a hypothesis stating that people tend to gravitate toward career fields that befit their names. Like we mentioned above, perhaps Tom Baker bakes. Catrina Carpenter is a well-renowned carpenter. Perhaps Melinda Miller works at a mill. And so on, and so forth.
