A causal effect of names?

"The initials of your name may influence where you choose to work, new research suggests.

While it sounds like a joke, a well-known psychological theory called the name-letter effect maintains that a person’s behavior may be influenced by his or her name."

Causation or correlation? I report. You decide.

Whole thing here.
