Apparently, people who have these names are more successful later in life
It turns out that your name has a LOT to do with how well you do in life.
Or, well, that's what people think anyways.
A new study has suggested there are certain names that are thought of as being able to make you more successful later on in life.
According to The Sun, a study conducted by Grosvenor Casinos found that William and Victoria - at 37.8 per cent -are thought of as the most successful names.
Soon after was George at 37.3 per cent and Elizabeth at 36.3 per cent.
Rounding out the top five were Richard and Alexander, both at 32 per cent, and Thomas at 28.1 per cent.
The full list is:
- William and Victoria (37.8%)
- George (37.3%)
- Elizabeth (36.3%)
- Richard and Alexander (32%)
- Thomas (28.1%)
- David (27.8%)
- Harry (25.5%)
- John (24.2%)
- Oliver (23.1%)
- Olivia (18.6%)
Almost half of the respondents in the UK (46 per cent) said that they reckoned sharing a name with a historical figured helped their chances later in life.
Meanwhile, 30 per cent said they felt sharing a moniker with a celebrity could help boost your success by association.
Caroline Webb, head of brand for Grosvenor Casinos, said:
“It’s so interesting to see what the nation considers to be a successful name.
“It does ask the question, if you are given one of these names, are you more primed for success in life?”
