It's been said that the name you give your baby is associated with characteristics, behaviours, facial appearance and can even reflect the sort of life that they will lead.

Previous research has revealed names most likely to be a sport star and those likely to live the luckiest life.

Now, a new study has revealed the baby names most common among billionaires, in order to help parents-to-be set their children up for success.

The list is based on the site’s internal customer data, as well as external data such as the Sunday Times Rich List.


  1. David
  2. Alex
  3. John/Jon
  4. James
  5. Mark
  6. Jeffrey/ Jeff
  7. Larry
  8. Bill/ William
  9. Rob/ Robert
  10. Michael
Among the top male names, David appeared 74 times across all of our research, while Alex cropped up 67 times. John or Jon, the third most common male Billionaire Baby Name, appeared a total of 61 times. Looking at their female counterparts, we found that Elizabeth (43) was the most common name, followed by Jasmine (32) and Ruth (31).


  1. Elizabeth/Elisabeth
  2. Jasmine
  3. Ruth
  4. Leonie
  5. Sofia
  6. Whitney
  7. Zara
  8. Rachel
  9. Linda
  10. Isabella
Aaron Harpin, founder of, said “Picking a baby name has forever been a special and acutely traditional moment for parents all over the globe, and while we think tradition is very important, we also think that giving your baby a name that makes them statistically more likely to be successful is a kindness any child would wish for.

“There are roughly 2,000 billionaires in the world, and while many of their names vary, there are also a few that share a first name – and this, coupled with our own internal customer data, has allowed us to curate a list of the names most common amongst the very top level of the 1%. Of course there’ll still be a lot of work to do once your baby is born, but using one of these names is certainly a start!”
