Kerrie Hopkins, America’s foremost Onomatologist, has recently launched her new data rich profiling website through www.namezook.com. The website isn’t ready for primetime but we hear it will be soon. Hopkins points out that Hollywood has known for years that changing your name can equate to a change in status, happiness and influence. That’s why Betty Joan Perske changed her name to the more glamorous Lauren Bacall, and Stephani Germanotta to the cooler Lady Gaga. We shouldn’t have to explain why Burcle Icle Ivanhoe changed his name to Burl Ives. Hopkins website is intended to provide much more insight than ever before on the importance of a name and how that might affect how things turn out for you.
Anthroponomastics, the study of names, has been taken one step further with Kerrie’s unique approach, dubbed “Onomology.” Many outlets use Kerrie’s research to comprehend world events and pop culture. Her name analysis seems intuitive, but is actually extensively researched. Kerrie has been showcased on over 2000 TV & Radio talk shows and consults in 5 Continents on this subject. She has authored several books, including the internationally acclaimed “Breaking the Name Code – Define your name – Design your life” which is studied at the University level. Kerrie’s comprehensive name dissection is based on unique spelling, segmental phonemes, syllable structure, word fragments, and distinct characteristics or “markers.” The study of names shows how you perceive yourself as well as how others perceive you, and examines how people interact with each other based on name characteristics.
