Do you have an easy name to remember and pronounce? Well according to this Health Day News report, it may help you get a raise faster.

"The easier your name is to pronounce, the more likely you are to receive promotions at work and make friends, a new study suggests." READ MORE

Do you like your name? If you could have picked your own name, what would it have been?

Well, my first name is simple (Carol) and you would think moth my maiden name adn my marreid last names are simple too (Mount and Harper, respectively) but you'd be surprised how hard it was for some to get their minds aournd either of those names! LOL

I like my name well enough --- although as a child, I often played with more glamourus names like "Julia"! LOL
