A new research study from the University of Tel Aviv indicates that there is a connection between kids with one syllable names and ADHD. The research, the results of which are going to be presented at the next Israeli National Psychiatry convention and also published in the European professional magazine “Psychotherapy,” found that Israeli kids with short names like “Bar,” “Ran” and “Oz” tend to be less calm and more “jumpy”
The new research was based on working with and questioning 134 kids who were diagnosed with ADHD, alongside kids who were randomly chosen from the population database of Israel. Turned out that kids with one syllable names, and also kids whose names express some sort of activity (Hebrew names like ‘Barak’, which means ‘lightning’ and ‘Saar’ which means ‘storm’), tend to be less calm and less concentrated.
