I have found this article on Wiki on Nominative determinism. It's a claim that a person's name plays a role in his life, like career choices and has influence over one's character in general.
I have also read Freakonomics where it is being argued the opposite that name has no influence (section about Winner and Looser).
Both sources are significant enough to raise a conflict.
Is there any non-anecdotal evidence (like studies) that would confirm or reject this theory?
