Most popular names of CEOs via LinkedIn

Most popular names for CEOs and other professions

A client of mine just sent me a link to this fantastic article, LinkedIn Wants To Help You Name Your New Baby/CEO. Have you ever wondered if your name is the cause of your career success or failure? Utilizing LinkedIn’s database of professionals, researchers determined the most popular names of CEOs and other professionals.

Here are two of the lists the article provided:
Top 10 Global Male CEO Names

  1. Peter
  2. Bob
  3. Jack
  4. Bruce
  5. Fred
  6. Bill
  7. Ron
  8. Christian
  9. Alexander
  10. Don

Top 10 Global Female CEO Names

  1. Deborah
  2. Sally
  3. Debra
  4. Cynthia
  5. Carolyn
  6. Pamela
  7. Ann
  8. Cheryl
  9. Linda
  10. Janet

Peter, Bob, Deborah and Sally. Sally? That surprises me. The names are so very milquetoast. Are people with exotic names destined to a life of middle manager status?
