First Names and Popularity in Grade School Children.
Busse, Thomas V.; Seraydarian, Louisa
Psychology in the Schools, v16 n1 p149-53 1979

Girls' popularity, as demonstrated by positive sociometric choices, was significantly related to the desirability of their first names. There is some indication that boys' popularity with girls was influenced by boys' first names. (Author)
