Academic words often make interesting subjects sound dull. Nominative determinism itself sounds like a very serious subject. Who would believe it is about something humorous? I think it should be called Funnynameology.
The funny subject of funny names is not usually referred to by most people by the mouthful of nominative
determinism, but it is useful to know that term when doing a web search of the subject. If you do not yet know anything about it, then you might
like to do a web search yourself for a few insights into the topic.
Here are just a few links I found very quickly some time ago:
Wikipedia - Nominative determinism
Mental Floss - Nominative determinism
SciLogs - Nominative determinism
Crikey - Nominative determinism
BBC - Nominative determinism
London Evening Standard - Nominative determinism
