FIRST impressions can make or break it, a person believes a name can lead someone down the wrong path.
They say they’ve met people whose parents “failed them”.
Anonymous Redditors u/World_Disposition share the names of people they came across while in rehab.
“Names of people I met in rehab,” they said. “Sometimes I feel like the name you give a child sets them up for failure in the first place…”
“Exodus (as the chapter in the Bible..),” they began.
What follows is the unique spelling of one word that can easily be confused with another: “Mercadise (Mercedes but spelled like this),” they explain.
“Aristocrat (also happens to be a narcissist),” they joked about the person’s personality.
People have taken to the comments section to share their thoughts on the names.
Many were appalled by the way parents spelled this unique name.
“Merk-a-dice,” joked one commenter.
“Goods?” another asked. “Spaceballs name spelled yuneighkleigh.”
Others were surprised that they also knew people with similar names – and similar fortunes.
Pretty much the Redditor’s theory that kids are “prepared to fail” is correct.
“I know a noble in high school, the poor guy grew up addicted to drugs,” one person commented.
