There are in fact two names that rank higher on the popularity scale, FYI. John Smith is actually only the third most popular name in the country, while David Jones (David Bowie’s real name) comes in second place. We know, we can’t believe it either.
Taking the top spot is good old David Smith. Probably John’s brother, cousin, dad, or whatever.
The news comes from a recent analysis of the Open Register by GBG for The Telegraphto find the top 100 most popular names in the country. The list of the most popular names is dominated by people with the lass name ‘Smith’ (no surprises there), or the first name ‘David’.
Interestingly, women’s names are reported as being far more diverse, only making up 17 of the 100, but the top ten is still made up entirely or Smiths or Joneses. Below is the break down of the most popular men and women’s names in Britain according to the Open Register.
