If You Want to Increase Your Income, Shorten Your Name

A new study from TheLadders, an online job searching site, analyzed first name data from their 6 million members. The study discovered that people with shorter names tend to have better salaries and higher-ranking positions.  Among the top five highest-level executive names are Bob and Bill, Cindy and Sarah.

And when it comes to salary, the study says, each additional letter added to your name results in a $3,600 drop in annual salary.  See Study Says Shorter Names Earn More .

I'm thinking that Tom's friend from AY in Chicago, T Sharp, has got to be a millionaire by now.
