It’s natural to want to give your baby the very best start in life, and that begins with picking the perfect name.
Of course you have to pick something that mom and dad both like, but you’ll probably find yourself wondering what the rest of your family and friends will think of the name, too.
But what if there was a way to boost your baby’s chances of making a million in the future?
Well, apparently there is. According to Linda Rosenkrantz of Nameberry.com, a site dedicated to helping parents choose the right name, there are a couple of ways to go about setting your kid up for success.
First, you could go for the names which are most common among millionaires and billionaires. Surprisingly, many of them are ones you probably hear on a daily basis.
They include Mark (as in Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook), Bill (Gates, the man behind Microsoft) and Jeff (Bezos, who started Amazon).
Of course, selecting a name which has been heard many times before isn’t for everyone. You might not want your baby to be one of several Marks in their class? If that’s your concern, Linda Rosenkrantz advises picking one of the more unusual millionaire names, like Amancio, Salma or Elon.
Linda’s suggestions are based on rankings of the richest people in the world, taken from Forbes and therichest.com
