If You Have This Name, You Have a Higher Chance of Getting Pregnant in 2017

While we’re usually fawning over the best baby names out there, it turns out that our own names can actually have a pretty big impact on our lives, years after they were initially bestowed. Take, for example, the 10 Tinder names that are most likely to get a right-swipe: Who wants to lose out on a soul mate over a name?

Now, Elite Daily is suggesting that there’s yet another big life event that could possibly be affected by your name — like when you have your first-born child. Combining stats from a joint report from the CDC and National Center for Health Statistics, which says that the average age of first-time mothers was up to 26.3 as of 2014, and the most popular baby names from the birth year of women of that same age (1991), they’ve come up with a comprehensive list of names that are most likely to get pregnant as first-time mothers in 2017.

Read on to see if your name made the top 10 below, and, consequently what 2017 has in store!

NAMES MOST LIKELY TO GET PREGNANT IN 2017

10. Emily

9. Elizabeth

8. Jennifer

7. Stephanie

6. Sarah

5. Samantha

4. Amanda

3. Brittany

2. Jessica

1. Ashley

And there you have it, folks! You’re most likely to get pregnant in 2017 if your first name is Ashley. Ashley was also huge in 1992, so it’s not TOO entirely shocking to say that this trend may be one that continues for a while (although we can’t say the Ash’s out there would agree).

Guess this means we’re officially on bump watch: We’re looking at you, A. Tisdale, A. Graham, A. Greene and A. Olsen!

Do you think there’s any truth to Elite Daily’s theory? Tell us over @BritandCo.
