Going For Gold: The Best Baby Names If You Want To Raise A Winner


If you want to raise a little winner, give them the name of a medal-holding, superstar. A group of researchers have done the hard work for you, gathering the top names of champions from across the worlds of sport and entertainment.

They then analysed the first names of Academy Award winners to Wimbledon champions, to see which ones were most likely to be successful. 

We have a wealth of baby name inspiration on HuffPost UK Parents, and you might just make your child a star with one from this top 10.

John

From Oscar winner John Wayne, to BAFTA winner John Cleese – not to mention Grammy and Brit award winner, John Lennon. John means ‘God is gracious’. 

Kim

Meaning ‘noble’ or ‘brave’, winning Kims include Brit winner Kim Wilde, Oscar winner Kim Basinger and former Wimbledon champ Kim Clijsters.

David

Former BBC Sports Personality of the Year David Beckham is a sporting champ, as is Olympic athlete David Boudia. David means ‘beloved’. 

Mary

Mary, meaning ‘beloved’ or ‘rebelliousness’, suits Mary Kom to a tee – she’s a 6-time World Amateur Boxing Champion, and the only woman boxer to win a medal in all seven world championships 

George

George Clooney, George Ezra and George Michael all achieved fame and fortune. Not surprising, when George means ‘earth’ or ‘soil’, and ‘hard work’.

Laura

From professional golfer Laura Davies, to British cyclist Laura Kenny, the name aptly represents the embodiment of victory and strength. 

Tom

Tom Daley is an English diver, TV personality and double World champion in the 10-metre platform event. His name means ‘innocence’ or ‘simplicity’. 

Jennifer

Jennifer Hudson won a BAFTA for best supporting actress for Dreamgirls in 2007, and Jennifer Lopez was given a ‘Legend Award’ at the World Music Awards in 2010. The name means ‘the fair one’. 

Paul

Paul, meaning ‘small’ or ‘humble’, doesn’t entirely suit acting legend Paul Newman, or singer-songwriter Paul McCartney, but it might bring similar success. 

Jessica

Jessica Lang won a best actress Oscar for her role in Blue Sky. Her name means ‘God beholds’.
