A new study reveals that babies given certain "bad boy" names are more likely to end up in jail. So what are these terrible, life-ruining monikers? Alec, Garland, Ivan, Kareem, Luke, Malcolm, Preston, Tyrell, Walter...and Ernest?!
The theory is that boys given one of these ten names are more likely to be teased in school. According to Michael Inbar of the Today Show, "the more unlikely the name, the more likely a boy is to commit a delinquent act." Or, in Ernest's case, the more likely he is to have wacky adventures and later share them with his friend Vern. [MSNBC]
