What's in a name? Maybe a criminal future

"Boys in the United States with common names like Michael and David are less likely to commit crimes than those named Ernest or Ivan, a new study says."

I'll have to check the police blotter for my old landlord...Rodney Krapp.

    Has anyone studied how likely people with unusual names are to be inventive or groundbreaking in their fields? I wonder where the statistics would lie for that comparison.
