Baby names you should choose if you want your children to be rich

It's never too early to consider what your baby might be when they grow up and you obviously want to do what you can as a parent to give them the best start in life.

According to new research parents who want their children to get rich should consider the names Andrew, Sam, or Christopher if they're a boy or Anna, Maria or Laura if they're a girl.

Names to swerve if you want them to be financially successful and savvy with their savings are Ali, Rob and Dan for boys – or Karen, Claire and Lisa for girls.

From the most popular, the most successful and the most traditional, to the worst and the banned, baby names around the world are always a topic of conversation.

So if you haven't been that clever with money as an adult, your child could get a good chance in life if you name them correctly, according to the research from investment platform eToro.

It analysed its own database of 12 million users to reveal which names have achieved the best and worst investment returns over the past 12 months.

While Oliver was the most popular choice for baby boys last year, according to the Office of National Statistics, parents expecting a little boy might want to consider something else – the name appeared in the top 10 for investment returns in 2015 but has since failed to make an appearance.

But Olivia, which was the most common name for girls in the UK last year, is still worth considering as women with the name achieved the best returns in 2019.

Most recently we've seen a trend for more traditional monikers after Samantha Faiers and her boyfriend Paul Knightley chose Rosie and Paul for their two children, and then there’s Emmerdale star Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden who have gone down a different road, naming their three boys Buster, Bowie Grey and Ace Gene.

In 2020, names such as Ada, Bonnie and Hallie are said to be high-climbers on the popular list, and for boys Theodore, Louis and Frankie.

Some mums looking to inject a little bit of fun into the decision-making, asked fellow parents on a Mumsnet thread to share their favourite name choices if it wasn't for the oh-so terrible meaning of the word.

Some unusual and downright appalling suggestions were made including such names like 'Nausea', 'Chlamydia', and 'Candida'.

eToro’s data also reveals the most financially savvy names going back as far as 2012, with Matt and Graham appearing in multiple years.

Girls' names don’t fare quite so well, with Ali appearing among the least successful investors in two separate years. The findings provide fresh evidence that what you call your children can have a big bearing on their futures.

In 2012, researchers from the University of Melbourne, the University of Leuven and New York University found that people with easy-to-pronounce names tend to hold more senior positions at work.
