This has nothing to do with voiceover work, but I just had to tell you about this. Evidently, there is research that demonstrates we humans link certain facial characteristics with certain names. Among the names with the strongest linkages between face and name are Bob, Bill, Brian and Jason. So, if you’ve ever said about someone, “he just looks like a Bob,” now you know why. Oh, and yes, I do actually fit the common characteristics of a Bob, which is a good thing since I am one.
If you read the linked article, you’ll note that the researchers tested only male names and only Caucasian male faces because they were looking for how subtle differences influence our associations between names and faces. (A hat tip to Bob Mould for the link to this article.)
