Which Names Get Laid The Most?

Beware of guys named Chris, Charles, Dennis, and James. According to a new study from SmartDate.com, dudes with names that end in the letter ‘s’ tend to be “players”—their word, not mine. Guys with these names have more sexual partners in their lifetime than others—while the average guy in the study has slept with 5.2 partners, these guys have had sex with more like 10 or 11. Ditto for Matts and Lukes. Apparently, you’re better off finding an Edward, Dylan, Frank, or Jason—who, according to the survey, have only had a single partner. Unless of course, more experience is what you’re after.

Oh, but they did the same analysis on ladies’ names, too. Keep reading »

Women Whose Names End In “A” Have More Sex

I don’t need a study to tell me that I was destined to be a hoochie mama, but here one is anyway. According to a French study, women whose names end in the letter “a” have more sexual partners over the course of their lifetime than the average woman, who typically has 4.4 partners. Um, try way, way, way above average. I’ve always been an overachiever. [Time] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Is Insistent That I Take His Name If We Marry”

I have been dating a wonderful man for two years and we have been talking about getting married. The only problem is that it’s very important to him that I take his last name. He thinks it would make us feel more like a family and serve as a sign of my devotion to him. If I decided not to take his name, he said it wouldn’t change him wanting to marry me, but it would really hurt him. Prior to this, I had had no intention of changing my name when I got married for a number of reasons, one being that I work in a field (music) where name recognition and networking are very important, another being that I have a strong connection to my father’s family. I feel my last name is a part of my identity and I’m scared to lose that. I don’t want to hurt him since I love him and it’s so important to him, but I also don’t want to make a decision I’d regret for the rest of my life. Is there a way to make both of us happy? Please help! — Mrs. Maiden Name

What’s In A Name When You Can Choose Your Own?

If you had your way, would you choose the name given to you at birth? For many transgender people, shedding their birth names and choosing a new name is a critical part of the female-to-male or male-to-female transition. Taking a new name marks the definitive end of their old self and the beginning of a new identity — but it’s also plagued with problems.

Transgender writer Juliet Jacques chose the name Juliet for her new MTF moniker and says that making the choice (and signing over herself legally to being female) was a big moment that was difficult on her friends and acquaintances. Keep reading »

Some Names Are Hotter Than Others

Yesterday, a guy friend of mine was telling me about a dude he knows who I might want to do a story on. He said the guy’s name was Hunter and gave me some other interesting tidbits about him, to which I replied, “He sounds hot!” My friend didn’t get how I had deduced that this guy would be good-looking based on so little info and without seeing a pic.

“His name,” I said. “Ninety percent of guys named Hunter are hot.” Keep reading »
