Other Abstract

Impressions of individuals often begin with a name. Introductions are made and perceptions formed about individual's behavior and potential for success and may even determine whether future interaction is desired. A study of online dating revealed that negatively named individuals were more neglected by other online-daters, as indicated by fewer first visits to their dating profiles. Previous researches on names were mostly focused on the names in western culture, in Chinese culture it's common that a male has a female-oriented name and vice versa. A research conducted by Chinese scholars examined the impact of first names on ratings of attractiveness by using pictures presented with male-oriented or female-oriented names,the stimulus figures whose gender orientation of name and gender identity of picture are consistent were considered more attractive.

This paper explored the impact of different gender orientation of names on female mate preferences in the early stage of mate selection. In study l, the independent variable is the first name (male}oriented, female-oriented) of male candidates, and the dependent variable is mate preferences (male-oriented name, female-oriented name). Study2 added photographs to candidates' profile on the basis of study 1.In addition, participants rated candidates on scales adapted from the Partner Ideal Standards Scale (Fletcher et al., 1999), so as to explore the mechanism of name effect in mate preferences. The results of study 1 showed that there were significant differences in the female participants' preferences of the male candidates. The candidate with male-oriented name was selected more than the one with female-oriented name. In study2, we built binary logistic regression models to predict the mate preferences from ratings of the Partner Ideal Standards Scale. The results revealed that the perceptions of attractiveness/vitality was a significant positive predictor of mate preferences.

Conclusion:(1) the gender orientation of names had an impact on mate preferences. For man the female-oriented name got less opportunities in the early stage of mate selection. (2) The perceptions of attractiveness/vitality caused by name positively predicted mate preferences.
