In my life anyway.
Mrs Knees has observed that bad people who lead me stray are called martin.
Bad Uncle Martin was the first of a long line of 'Bad Martins' who have been freinds/influences
Whether or not it is that the parents somehow are inspired to name their children because they are subconciously aware of their future, or whether the name makes people treat them in such a way that they are directed into badness is unclear.
I have also heard another theory that the surname 'Daniels' is often associated with neordowells (this was from a freind called daniels who was a neordowell.
So be especially wary of anyone called Martin Daniels
However I would always advise giving more leeway with anyone called Martin
