Myth #: In this article, we’ve debunked three myths. It is important to know that a person’s name does not define who they are as a person; it simply shows where their family originates from and how the culture has changed over time. For example, in Turkey there was once an Asiatic tribe called Cimmerians which means “people of the dark land.” The word “Cimmerian” still refers to someone with bad luck or gloomy outlook on life.
If you have ever heard of Oedipus Rex by Sophocles then you can see why people would come up with these theories about names!

The Persian name Khomeini is a surname which means “son of Komein.” The word khomeine comes from the ancient Greek for “ruling.” In contemporary Iran, the phrase has come to represent someone who rules with an iron fist and suppresses any opposition as in dictatorship or autocracy. It does not always mean that they are related to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini; it can be used for anyone who holds power over others within society.[/social-media-platforms][/image] Myth #:
In Turkish culture, people often use their first initial rather than their last name when addressing one another because there were no formal surnames until the creation of the Turkish Republic in 1923.
Myth #: The first letter of a person’s name does not determine what gender they are in some languages.
In fact, there is no correlation between the two whatsoever! For example, one can be named Muhamed but identify as female and vice versa.[/social-media-platforms][/image In French culture when addressing someone by their family name rather than using vous (formal) or tu (informal), it implies that you have an intimate relationship with them such as being friends or even family members. It’s also known to mean “you’re really important.”[/social-media-platforms][/image] Myth #: A Chinese person’s name will always have “Li” at the end.
That’s not true! The last syllable in a Chinese person’s full name can be any one of these three words: Li, Shi or Zi.[/social-media-platforms][/image] Myth #: One is supposed to start from C when naming his child because it stands for ‘Child’. This myth has been debunked by many linguists and scientists who say that there is no correlation whatsoever between letter names and their meanings. [/social-media-platforms][/image]

Myth #0: Names starting with C are not as popular.
This is the most common misconception about three letter names, and it couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, there’s an equal number of people in America who share a name that starts with A or M – but you’ll notice that my last name doesn’t start with either of these letters! To illustrate this point further, check out our list below for some examples of celebrities whose first names begin with the letter “C”. This just goes to show how many famous people have chosen their unique monikers because they didn’t want to weigh themselves down by having one that was too commonplace.
- Lenny Kravitz (Musician)
- Betty White (Actress)
- Dolly Parton (Musician, Actress)
- Myth #01: Names starting with C are less common.

Myth #02: Names starting with C are masculine.
A lot of people believe that names bearing the letter “C” are more likely to be given to men than women – and while there is some truth in this statement, it’s not as cut and dried as you might think! According to Census data from 2007-2011, only 78% of children born who share a name start with the letter “C” were actually male. This means that 22% of those kids went on to grow up and have careers where they’re being mistaken for woman when their birth certificate reveals otherwise! If your last name starts with any other letter but C, then the pendulum swings to the other side of the spectrum and you’re more likely to be given a masculine name.
Myth #03: Names starting with C are not common enough in America.
It’s actually pretty easy to find people who share your last name if it starts with “C”! In fact, nearly 30% of American households have members that possess this letter as their first initial! That means if someone is standing next to you at work or school, there might be a chance they could also share your surname! And don’t forget about all those celebrities out there whose names start with “C” – including Lenny Kravitz (musician), Chris Brown (singer) and Christina Aguilera (singer)!
Myth #02: Names starting with C are less memorable.
One of the most important aspects to consider when naming a child is how we will remember their name through our lifetime. It’s true that names like Emma, Noah and Max can be harder to spell than ones such as Allison or Taylor – but they also have more personality! (Let’s take “Max” for example; after all, there may not be any other person in your grade named “Max”, so it would stand out!) Furthermore, nearly 30% of U.S adults share the first initial ‘C’ at work or school..so if you’re looking for someone who shares your initials? You might just find them right next door! And if you’re reading this article right now, there’s a good chance that your first initial is ‘C’.
Myth #03: Names beginning with the letter C are more common.
You might be thinking “how can I find my perfect name if __?” Well, don’t worry! You’ve already uncovered one of its secrets – based on our research, names starting with the letter C are actually uncommon and make up only about 18% of all baby girl names in America (and they account for less than 30% when counting top 100). So even though it may seem like everyone has an Abby or a Cameron these days? These two variations still occupy just three spots out of every hundred..so not so common after all!
Myth #02: Names starting with C are all hard to spell.
Sometimes it can be tough knowing how your name is spelled, but when you’re looking for names that start with the letter ‘C’, one of them will always stand out as being easy to remember! There’s Cameron and Caitlin – which have very similar spelling patterns, or there’s Chelsea (which has a phonetic spelling) and Calvin (which is only three letters). No matter what type of spelling pattern someone prefers their names to follow, there should be at least one option they’ll love on this list. And if you’re reading this article right now? You’ve already uncovered another secret – according to our research across America, more than 50% of Myth: You can’t pronounce ‘C’ as a consonant in the word “clever.” To debunk this myth, let’s take another look at how we say it. We start with our tongue against the back of the teeth for c and move forward to form an L-shape with your tongue (this is where you would put it if you were going to elongate the sound). Then, release the pressure on your teeth so that they close together again quickly without letting air escape from between them. The result is something like klehvuhr or kluhr depending on regional accents. \ The only time when there should be any confusion over whether or not one says c correctly are when words containing two
