Men’s Names That Have the Best Success in Business . . . and Have the Worst Success

I’m not sure there’s any ACTUAL connection between your name and how well your career turns out . . . especially when you’re dealing with very common names.  But it’s always entertaining to look at it anyway.

According to a new study of male names, guys named John, David, and Steve have the most SUCCESS in business and usually make the most MONEY.  Guys named Tony, Matthew, and Jimmy do the WORST.

The top 10 men’s names tied to success and money are:  John, David, Steve, Paul, Alan, Richard, Peter, Andrew, Mark, and James.

The 10 men’s names tied to the LEAST success and money are:  Tony, Matthew, Jimmy, Fred, Brian, Ben, Ed, Alex, Kevin, and Martin.

The study also found men named Alex, Ben, and Matthew are most likely to be seen as CREATIVE . . . and men named Justin, Rick, Gary, and Edward have the most regrets about their career choices.
