Could the length of your first name actually affect the salary you're paid? Online job-matching site The Ladders recently looked at the information from its database of over six million professionals and found that people with first names longer than five letters lose out on about $3,600 in salary each year -- and that's per letter over five. They also compared people who used nicknames instead of their full names and found that only one name out of 24 pairings -- Larry instead of Lawrence -- saw the longer name earn more, on average.
