A friend of mine recently decided that the shortened version (Larry) of his given name (Lawrence, I'm assuming), wasn't scoring him any points with the ladies.

So how does this barroom convo go?

Guy - "Hi, I think you are pretty and cool."

Girl - "I think you are handsome and interesting. What is your name?"

Guy - "Larry."

Girl - "Oh. Umm, nevermind."

Well, maybe it wasn't that blunt, but the general belief that being named 'Larry' was hurting his chance with the eligible single ladies was enough to have him ask us to start calling him 'Lance'.

No joke.

So, tell us....are there certain names out there that make men or women more or less attractive. Leave the names that would stop you from dating someone in the Facebook comments below.
