I have a piece up at The Good Men Project about what we can discern about Candidate Romney from the name ‘Mitt’. My generalization stems from an analysis conducted by LinkedIn which found that CEOs tend to have short, familiar first names like Bill or Jack. Sales professionals also tend to have four-letter first names which create a feeling of familiarity. Chip or Todd are common first names for sales professionals. Mitt Romney was named after his father’s cousin, Mitch ‘Mitt’ Romney, who was quarterback for the Chicago Bears in the 1920s.
Names aren’t destiny, but I do believe that our names put out signals to the world which feed back to us in various ways. Every man ever named Mitt would not become a powerful politician, but this particular Mitt has in part, I believe, because of his semi-throwback, semi-jocular throwback name.
