What your name says about you

What your name says about youLondon -  Your name can say a lot about you and your personality, a poll has revealed.

According to the poll, people with the name David are clumsier than anyone else, while Daves often look for affairs online, pull sickies from work and win lotteries more than most.

The most seductive names in the English language were found to be are Chris, Charles, Dennis and James and any male with a name that ends in “S” tends to be more lucky in love.

Unfortunately if you’re called Edward, Dylan, Frank, or Jason, your chances of pulling this weekend are not good.

The hottest female names end with an “A” meaning the Vanessas, Angelas, Tamaras, Dianas and Olivias of this world have the greatest pulling power.

Sadly though, if you are called Jean or Dorothy, are not much in luck, the Mirror reported.

The true path to power in business is to be called Peter or Deborah.

A study of the top CEO names revealed these to be most popular for the job.

A report into the most employable names in the workplace discovered that Jeremy and Andrew are always popular with employers while the likes of Katie and Claire work well on the CV for women.

Men called Rupert, Julian, Piers, Giles and Justin are more likely to be caught speeding, and the same applies to ladies called Alexis, Deidre, Susannah, Justine or Juliet – these names are also the top offenders in the UK.

Meanwhile, males who are called Terence, Connor, Joshua, Jake or Jordan plus females named Paige, Bethany, Lily, Shannon or Molly make up some of the most responsible drivers across the country.

Beware if your partner is called John or Sarah. These two are the most likely to look for an affair online.

John, Paul, Steve, Dave, David and James are the top six cheaters on the web.

Sarahs are the worst girls, but don’t be fooled by plain Janes either – they are the second most prolific females.

Americans are known for locking people up, but studies in the US show that males with more feminine sounding first names such as Garland, Tyrell and Luke are far more likely to end up in jail than men called Al, Tony or Butch.

The poll found that Ryan and Sophie are considered to be more healthy and wholesome than anyone else.

On the other hand if you are called Brian or Lisa most people feel you should really think about renewing that gym membership.

While the Premier League is the most cosmopolitan league in the world, the names most likely to become footballers here still have a familiar twang.

If you dream of running out at Old Trafford or Anfield, change your name to Danny, Chris, Joe or Michael, but if you’re called Jamie, Jack, Craig, or Stephen you’re likely to be on the bench.

If you are trying to get that all-important bank loan to start a new business you may be in luck if you are called Jack or Nathan because men with these names are supposed to be much more trustworthy than others.

Watch out if Daniel or Wayne turn up on your doorstep though.

Similar studies have revealed that emales to trust are Paulas and Louises, but not Catherines or Charlottes.

Workers called Andy and Sarah are most likely to fake illness to get a day off work, while others likely to fake sickness include Steve, Paul, John and Dave.

The poll of 5,000 workers and employers showed that the top names for female employees who are exposed as “desk-dodgers” also include Becky, Anne, Emma and Debbie.
