Does your name have anything to do with your personality?

Just about anything can affect a person's personality if they allow it to affect them. You name someone Zeus, they might feel they are meant to be dominant and strong. Give someone the name like Dick and they may become jerks and arrogant. You could name a girl Hera and the same could be true of her being aggressive and dominant, or you could call your child Hugo and they might get it into the head to be a playboy. And we're not even discussing yet the nicknames people can be labeled with as they're growing up.
Then we can discuss the legacy of a name. If you name someone after yourself and you're successful, don't you feel it may generated a desire in them to also be as successful if not better. It puts pressure on them to succeed in life, even if they are not as bright or charismatic as you were at the same age. Just look at the English Royal family. Do you not believe they have expectations placed on them because of the name they carry? If you don't believe a name can affect a person's personality, then look around in the media for examples of just the opposite.
The bottom line, in my view, is a person's name, where they live, how they grow up, the way their parents live and act, what they see on television, in songs, what they experience at school; one and on the list goes of what can affect a person's personality. It is completely again, Nature versus Nurture.
This isn't to say we can rebel and ignore such forces working on our personality and decide for ourselves who and what we want to be. Children all across the globe have broken with their family name, with their families, and with classifications of who they are supposed to be all the time, to follow their own path. It is not even rare anymore for this to happen, but this doesn't lessen the point of the question or the answer in what can and cannot affect us if we allow it. End of story.0

To extent yes. Weak name will make person weaker, funny name will make person weaker because they might be made fun of, while strong name will project confidence.9
