Perhaps not so much with adults, but names certainly set the stage for relationships among kids. If you have an "odd" name, its great fodder for being picked on since you were "different". Growing up with the name Harvey certainly had its challenges. Seems that many of the "H's" fell into that same mold. Harvey, Henry, Herbert, Harold. This can even be validated by various movies and TV shows over the years - Harvey was usually the name of the geek in the story. Other "odd" names that weren't perceived as wimpy, for example Rex or Max didn't have that problem.
