It is not uncommon to hear expressions that link certain names with certain traits.

All the time people say stuff like "Men named Segun are usually troublesome, men named Ayo are often promiscuous.

"Women named Cynthia are often slutty as well as those named Sandra and Jessica."

While some of these beliefs might be popular, the truth to them have never been really confirmed.

Well, something close to a confirmation seems to have been found by website, Siteopia, after their most recent survey.
