Can your NAME predict your CREDIT SCORE?
We’ve got the results of a study that found which NAMES are tied to the highest and lowest average credit scores.
Now, of course, your NAME didn’t make you skip those 15 credit card payments. But this is still interesting stuff.
For men, the five names tied to the HIGHEST credit scores are Brian, Alan, Ian, Peter, and Robert. For women, the five names tied to the highest credit scores are Helen, Susan, Julie, Elizabeth, and Joanne.
One thing that jumps out right away: Most of those are NOT young people’s names. And, generally, older people have better credit than younger people.
The five male names tied to the LOWEST credit scores are Daniel, Lee, Matthew, Steven, and Christopher.
The five female names tied to the worst credit are Lisa, Victoria, Emma, Nicola, and Claire.
