I'm... too sexy for my name
Either scientists have a lot of time on their hands, or some reporters are just killing for a story. Turns out that your name's sound has a sexy quality:
    Men with “front vowels” in their names — sounds formed at the front of the mouth like the “a” in Matt — were considered sexier than men with “back vowel” sounds like the “au” in Paul, she concluded.
I'm a little confused, since my first name conflicts with my middle. I will vouch for the non-sexy quality of Paul, mostly because anytime I hear the name, it's usually together with the first in the form of outrage (i.e., my mother getting angry: "Matthew Paul Jones!!!!").

Alas, for Jaquandor, the news is not as good:
    But men who might be thinking of taking more feminine names to become sexier should be careful not to go too far: Men with women’s names were rated least sexy of all.
