How important is choosing a baby name? According to research by a professor at the University of California, your kid's name could determine his or her future success.

Albert Mehrabian even developed a system to determine the "attractiveness" of a name. And names can have a correlation to people's impression of individuals.

"People treat you differently depending on how attractive or unattractive your name is," Mehrabian said in an interview with UCLA News. "Can you imagine someone who calls himself 'Billy' becoming a CEO of a corporation? People make intuitive judgments based on names."
