First time introductions usually begin with an exchange of names. A name may influence the way an individual behaves and whether continuous interaction is sought after (Erwin, 1993; Erwin & Calev, 1984). Evolutionarily, certain personal attributes, such as physical attractiveness and social status, seem to be more important in mating relationships than in other types of relationships. Previous studies have examined the impact of given names on perception of physical attractiveness when presented with a male or female image, either with an attractive or unattractive name. In these studies, it was hypothesized that names would affect the ratings of physical attractiveness given to stimuli photographs (Erwin, 1993; Joubert, 1994). As such, this study will examine the ratings of attractiveness and social status from a name alone and then when presented with a generated image. Understanding factors for determining attractiveness can provide insights into personal attributes that appear to have critical implications on social interactions and outcomes.
