Finally - an explanation for why Joffrey Lupul turned out so badly for the Oilers:

In writing about the Social Science Quarterly report, Time magazine pointed to a 1993 study that showed boys who have strange spellings of common first names (read Patric, Geoffrey) are less likely to be upstanding and successful; a 2001 study showing that boys are judged for their moral character and masculinity by their first names; and a University of Michigan study that stated, "having an unusual first name leads to unfavorable reactions in others, which then leads to unfavorable evaluations of the self."
