"When we come back. We'll tally up the score. Does your name matter or doesn't it and we will look at the naming patterns among conservative families which tend to be pretty conservative conservative and liberal families educated liberal mothers tend to be choosing names that sort of are obscure cultural references and so these are the as well as the owners and the archimedes and the emerson's and we think this is a way that liberal sort of signaled their cultural for lack of a better word their their sense of cultural superiority. I my name is brooke. Haviland havilland and i lived in denver colorado on ten years old and i think my name rocket is actually kind of cool and people think it is my dad's are rocket it engineers so <hes> a lot of people think that may knock it was because of him actually is the opposite he was in college when i was born and and and then when i want her to got out of college looking for jobs and for the rocketing here and when there's an interview mentioned that much bracket and so the job so i kinda think he got the job because and my sister wants me to <music> <music>. My name is harry. He'll potter sometime around the whole <hes> every time i went to the airport jer tried to use my credit card suddenly <hes> everybody thought it was really really funny. My name is shirt occurred. My twin sister's name is paris paris paris because it related to where we were confused on my dad. I always said that it was better than game but before it which is probably some other kids from story hi. My name is ellen ellen chang but actually <hes> my formal name on my passport is changing chang. That is a translation of my name's names. Originally in chinese is actually pronounced. <hes> junctions became chinchiang which is weird so the economists steve levitt enrolling fryer went through decades of baby named data and concluded that the name. I'm you give your child does not move the needle on that child's future economic life but there's other research which finds that a name may matter at least on some dimensions boys with feminine names. It's been argued act up more in school. A girl with a masculine name meanwhile is more likely to have a successful legal career and another study by marianne bertrand and central line. A thon was called are emily emily and greg more employable than lakisha and jamal. This study found that if you send out a resume with the white sounding name it's about fifty percent more likely to get a call back then an identical resume. Were all you've done is changed the name to a black doc sounding name so which argument is right does name matter. Does it not matter. I think that both could would be right. There are ways to reconcile them so let's start with the audited studies that steve levitt again the audit study is the one with the resumes so in the audit studies what researchers do is take identical resumes and they just changed the name the first name that one name is distinctively black and another name is an and they send send those out to employers and see whether there's a callback and what they find every time is that if you have a distinctively black name you're less likely to get a callback okay so how can that'd be reconciled with the fact that in our data in real life data how people actually lived the names didn't seem to matter but i think the answer comes in a couple of different ways the first is that just because you get a callback doesn't mean that you're likely to get a job until to the extent that there are discriminatory employers out there and those discriminatory employees are using your name to figure out whether or not you're black then indeed the worst thing you could possibly do would be to show up for an interview if you are black with a white name.
