12 people with names that sound ridiculously well-suited to banking

Kind of a big deal.

Kind of a big deal.

You want to work in investment banking? Fine, but does your name sound ideally suited to finance? Will people hear your handle and think – like when Homer Simpson rebranded to Max Power after reading the front of a washing machine – this person is the sort of dynamic individual I want to manage my business?

Probably not, if you’re an average Joe Smith, but the people in the list below do sound like kind of a big deal. They sound important. They probably own leather-bound books. And what’s more, they actually work in the financial sector.
