Choosing the name for a newborn baby is risky. Without going into details on specific names, there are certain things you just don't want to call your child. That said, recent research has proven that we put too much stock in names. Statistically speaking, they don't have a massive effect on the futures of their bearers — renowned educational researcher Marijuana Pepsi Vandyck is proof of that. The name effect can, however, work in reverse. For example, the internet has a huge problem with Karen, the middle-aged soccer-mom who just has to speak to your manager.
Take this quiz, and we'll try to guess your name based on your personality. Will you be a class-A Brad or a total Karen? We just might name you better than your parents did!

Imagine you're sitting in class on the first day of term. The teacher calls out names when, suddenly, they stop. They don't want to say the next name on that list. Eventually, they say it: "Marijuana Pepsi?" A sweet girl, sitting at the front of the class, puts her hand up and says, "Here!" The teacher stares at her with fear and confusion. Soon after, teachers at this school begin to call the girl "Mary" instead of her full name. You can probably understand their consternation, but that doesn't mean they're right, either. That's what happened to the real Marijuana Pepsi. She was treated as an outsider by her teachers at school, but her mother told her that her name would take her around the world. When Marijuana won a school spelling bee, the school changed the name on her award certificate to Mary Jackson. Marijuana's mother was not impressed and fought with the principal to have the name changed back. Today, Marijuana is a respected educational researcher, whose PhD dissertation is titled "Black names in white classrooms: Teacher behaviors and student perceptions."
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around.

(Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
