Top 20 smartest children’s names for boys and girls in the UK

Top 20 smartest children’s names for boys and girls in the UK 5

The top 20 children’s names for the smartest boys and girls in the UK has been revealed to help parents choose a name that will ‘ensure academic success’.

Online tutoring platform Tutor House used its data to compile a list of its most academically gifted students to find the names commonly associated with achieving high grades in school, college and university.

Last month we revealed the names of the naughtiest children as chosen by parents and teachers – and it was bad news if your child is called Mia or Jack, which were chosen as the UK’s biggest mischief makers.

This time round it’s better news for parents who called their little ones George and Emma, with the names coming out on top for those linked with being clever cookies.

Tutor House, which offers private home tuition, analysed ten thousand names from the last five years and cross-referenced them with exam grades to find the brainy bunch.

Alex Dyer, founder of Tutor House, said: “Parents often spend a great deal of time deliberating on what name to give their child, and rightly so.

“It forms part of your child’s identity, with social science studies finding that a name can influence careers, personality traits and even physicality.

“With that in mind, and considering the wealth of data we have, we thought it would be interesting to see what names are most commonly associated with being academically gifted.

Advice for parents

“While obviously your name has no reflection on your potential, the results are still interesting and might prove useful for parents who are struggling to settle on a name.”

So if you’re banking on your child being your early ticket to retirement, Emma and George might be a wise choice.
