What's in a name?

Does anyone else feel like me when I say that I believe it is possible to know something about someone you never met based on their first name?  Let me try to explain more clearly.  Every Kathy or, Cathy I have ever known has been laid back, honest, very normal etc.  Every Joe or, joseph that I have known has been outgoing, honest, likeable and easy to get along with.  Most Davids that I know are aggressive, seem superior, etc.  Stans that I know are pretty obnoxious, never stop talking and are hard workers to make up for their lack of smarts. Stephanies are very sweet, pleasant, average surface types. Get the idea?  Anyone see a pattern like this in people they know?
