OUR travel bucket list can be determined by many things.

A recommendation from a friend, an Instagram photo, a book, TV show, movie or song can often be the source of inspiration.

But could it have anything to do with our name?

According to On The Go Tours, data collected from travel bookings from more than 100,000 names and an analysis of their most popular 400 tours, have found some links between a travel destination and peoples’ first name.

The tour operator found that:

*Williams would look to visit Sri Lanka, India and Peru

*Louises dream of travelling to Russia, Morocco and Croatia

*Sophias are likely to visit Vietnam, Jordan and Iceland

*Alex is most likely to visit Iceland, Africa and Croatia

*Megan is most likely to visit Croatia, Iceland and Egypt

*Sams are likely to visit Croatia, Africa and Egypt

*Adrians are likely to visit Peru, Russia and India

*Tinas dream of visiting Morocco, Peru and China

*Melanie is most likely to visit Croatia, Russia and Turkey

*Seans are most likely to travel to Peru, Africa and Iceland

In creating an online tool, the travel website also enables travellers to search for some first names in their database and see where they are most likely to travel to.

Travellers with the tour operator come from come from all over the world including the UK, Australia, USA, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and Ireland.

In comparing these findings to members of the Royal family, Prince William did go to India with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle has been to Iceland before.

But obviously not every first name in the world is in the database, making it hard for everyone to compare their first name to what might or might not be on their bucket list.

According to the data, people with the following names have the travel bug more than anyone else.

The top five names of female and male travellers you’re most likely to bump into include:

Girls:

Sarah

Susan

Elizabeth

Jennifer

Rebbecca

Emma

Michelle

Karen

Helen

Lisa

Boys:

David

Michael

John

Andrew

Peter

James

Paul

Robert

Christopher

Mark

On The Go Tours Managing Director Carl Cross said they hoped their first name and travel choices tool will help to provide inspiration for intrepid explorers and to let them see where other people who share their name have been choosing to go.

“The analysis shows that even a slight difference in spelling of the same name can produce contrasting results — for example, Michele dreams of travelling to Russia, India and Peru, while Michelle would prefer to explore Iceland, Africa or Croatia. The data also reveals the names of the individuals who love to holiday more than any of us!,” he said.
