If you’re still looking for inspiration to name your baby, you may like to know what names have been chosen as the ones that make people smile.
Some of the questions asked were “What is the name of a person who makes you smile the most?” and “What is the first name of the person who makes you smile the least?”
David is the name least likely to get a smile as is June for girls.
George and Emily are the names that got the most smiles from participants who conducted the survey.
The research found these results:
Boys’ names most likely to make people smile:
Girls’ names most likely to make people smile:
Boys’ names least likely to make people smile:
Girls’ names least likely to make people smile:
The names that got the least smiles was possibly because they are the names associated with politicians. Dr Nigel Carter, CEO of the Oral Health Foundation explained, “Politicians are rarely the most popular people but at such a politically charged time it seems that even the mention of some of our top politician names such as, David and Jeremy, is enough to swiftly banish our smiles.
Obviously this research is very subjective; we all have that one person in our lives that makes us grin from ear-to-ear and one which can quickly turn our smiles upside down.”
