MANCHESTER, England, November 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Top 100 list reveals most and least generous names in UK

Over 250,000 surveyed

Julie, David and Mark in the top 3 most generous names

Adam and Patricia named as least generous

If you're friends with an Adam or a Patricia, you might find yourself empty handed come Christmas time, as research from an online retailer has discovered the Top 100 Generous Names in the UK.

The study conducted by personalised gift specialists GettingPersonal.co.uk compiled data from over 250,000 gift givers, and takes into account not only the number of gifts purchased but also the total amount spent.

The results reveal that Paul, David and Mark are the top three most generous men's names, while Adam, Lee and Ben came at the bottom of the list. It turns out that Paul McCartney is the person we should want opening presents with us on Christmas day, and not Ben Affleck.

It also looks like Dame Julie Andrews never lost her Christmas spirit, as the name Julie topped the list of generous women, along with the names Karen and Rebecca. Watch out for Patricia, Diane and Janet, though because these ladies turned out to be the stingiest.

When it comes to our royals, Kate might want to start dropping some serious hints because 'William' didn't even make it into the top 100.

John Smith, co-founder of GettingPersonal.co.uk said, 'the generosity list is just a bit of fun, and obviously there are lots of generous Adams and Patricias in the UK. As we specialise in personalised gifts, we thought it would be interesting to see whether there was any link between peoples' names and their gift giving habits.'
