Could these baby names make your child a billionaire?

Following the popularity of our millionaire baby name list earlier this year, we are excited to reveal the top 10 baby names for boys and girls, who are most likely to become billionaires when they grow up. 

All parents want to give their kids the best start in life and the first step is their name. To help expectant mums and dads pick out the perfect name, we have analysed our internal data, as well as public information such as the Sunday Times Rich List, to highlight the names most common among billionaires – so they can set their child on the path to success. 

The list includes multiple names of technology tycoons and business moguls, such as John, Bill, Judy and Ann, as well as many other traditional names.

The top ten billionaire baby names for boys and girls are:


  1.  John/Jonathan/Jonny 
  2.  David/Dave
  3. Thomas/Tommy/Tom
  4. Wang 
  5. Bill/Billy 
  6. Charles/Charlie
  7. Michael/Mike/Mikey
  8. Robert/Robbie
  9. Mohammed
  10. Jim/Jimmy


  1. Marie/Maria/Mary
  2. Judy/Judith
  3. Sofia/Sofie
  4. Ann/Anna/Annie
  5.  Victoria/Vicky/Tori
  6. Elizabeth/Beth/Lizzie
  7. Abigail/Abby/Abbie
  8. Kim
  9. MacKenzie
  10. Kirsten

The list consists of the most popular names of the top 500 billionaires in the world*, as well as looking into names that are most popular with wealthy parents in 2019. The top 500 revealed that there are more men with names beginning with the letters I, J and K (66) than there are women on the whole list (63). The top male name, John (and it’s equivalents), appears on the list 11 times, followed by David, which appears 10 times. 

The news comes after we revealed the top names for millionaires earlier this year, which saw babies named Edward, William, Alice and Kate most likely to become millionaires.

Aaron Harpin, founder of, said: 

“Earlier this year, we revealed the top millionaire-making baby names for expectant parents and after such a positive response back, we wanted to make a list that takes it one step further – billionaire baby names!

“Picking a name for your child is a big decision for any parent. Ultimately this name is with them for life – the first thing people know about them, judge them on and can affect their future! As a parent you want to give your child the best life possible, and wealth is a factor which comes into that. We hope this list will give mums and dads-to-be some inspiration when it comes to naming their future billionaire baby.”
