If this is your name, you’re most likely to become a billionaire, says study

According to a new study by HushHush.com, there a select number of money-making names that tend to be very common among billionaires, meaning if you hold one of those names then billionaire status is in your future – if you haven’t already got there yet.

The research revealed that the names Maria and John are at the top of the list on the billonaire’s club. So if that’s you, you may want to start planning the colour co-ordination of all the Ferraris you’re about to have packed up in the driveway to you mansion. As for the rest of us – we now know exactly what to call our unborn babies.

The team at HushHush.com came to the conclusion after looking into the world’s wealthiest  men and women, of which there are just 2,153 according to Pretty52, and spotting a pattern in their monikers.

As well as Maria and John, other popular names were Judy, Sofia, Anna, Victoria Elizabeth, Abigail, Kim, MacKenzie and Kirsten for women, and David, Thomas, Wang, Bill Charles, Michael, Robert, Mohammed and Jims for men.

Aaron Harpin, founder of HushHush.com, said: ‘Earlier this year, we revealed the top millionaire-making baby names for expectant parents and after such a positive response back, we wanted to make a list that takes it one step further – billionaire baby names!’

He continued: ‘Picking a name for your child is a big decision for any parent. Ultimately this name is with them for life – the first thing people know about them, judge them on and can affect their future. As a parent you want to give your child the best life possible, and wealth is a factor which comes into that.

‘We hope this list will give mums and dads-to-be some inspiration when it comes to naming their future billionaire baby.’
