Cool people you should know: Claudia Buchmann and Claudia Goldin
Plenty of folks will tell you what to name your kids if you want them to assume particular stations in life - so here's my advice: if you want your daughter to be an exceptional social scientist who studies gender, go with Claudia.
Claudia Buchmann (left) is a sociologist at Ohio State, and Claudia Goldin (right) is an economist at Harvard. Both have written recently on the growing female advantage in completing college - see my post on Friday for their cool findings, and the links above for their papers.
