Stereotyped Connotations of Masculine and Feminine Names.
Duffy, James C.; Ridinger, Bruce
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v7 n1 p25-33 Jan 1981
Subjects rated masculine and feminine first names on five connotative dimensions: evaluation, activity, potency, stability, and receptivity. The potency dimension (i.e., adjective pairs such as brave-cowardly, severe-lenient, strong-weak) was found to most strongly distinguish masculine and feminine names. No differences were found due to sex of subjects. (GC)
