The Top 10 Names of Men Who Make the Best Husbands


There’s nothing we love more than a good old-fashioned list. And the latest one making the rounds on Facebook is interesting!

A light-hearted study, compiled by folks at, spoke with 2,000 adults in an amtempt to find out the names of men who make the best husbands.

Yes, really. Check it out:

1. David

2. Andrew

3. Daniel

4. Paul

5. John

6. William

7. Simon

8. James

9. Chris

10. Stephen

Men named Mark, Rob, and Pete also narrowly missed out on the list of the top 10 most reliable husband names.

A spokesman said: “Every time we hear mention of a name we naturally associate particular values or impressions based on our past experiences. It seems certain names tend to crop up more than others when thinking about the qualities of a good husband or wife, and the lists no doubt make interesting reading to many.”

“Of course, people shouldn’t be judged on a name alone, so while men like David and Andrew seem to be top of the pile, they’ve still got to uphold that reputation day to day.”

And, in case you were wondering, the site also created a list of women’s names that make the best wives.

They are:

1. Katie

2. Sophie

3. Louise

4. Sarah

5. Emily

6. Charlotte

7. Elizabeth

8. Amy

9. Jessica

10. Lucy

Emma, Nicole, and Grace also came close to making the list — sorry, ladies!

What do you think of these lists — do you think there’s any truth to them?
