The study, published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, was conducted by a group of American and Australian scientists who tracked 500 student volunteers with Anglo, Asian, and European backgrounds and 500 lawyers in the US and found that those who had simple names won more favor in their jobs.

"Research findings revealed that the effect is not due merely to the length of a name or how foreign-sounding or unusual it is, but rather how easy it is to pronounce", co-author of the study, Simon Laham from Melbourne University said.
