There’s no point denying it; the calendar is whizzing by us pretty quickly this year, and it won’t be long before we find ourselves smack-bang in the middle of 2017.

So, if you’re the sort of person who likes to plan ahead, we imagine you’d probably find it useful to know whether or not he’ll be having a BABY this year.

Yup, we’re talking about the future daddies of 2017.

So how do we figure out which men will be hearing the pitter patter of little feet?

Well, there’s apparently a way to use his name to figure it out.

Oh yes.

So, if his name is on this list, he’s far more likely to have a baby in 2017 than anyone else.

Top 20 names of men most likely to become dads in 2017

  1. Michael

  2. Christopher

  3. Matthew

  4. Joshua

  5. Daniel

  6. David

  7. James

  8. Robert

  9. John

  10. Joseph

  11. Andrew

  12. Ryan

  13. Brandon

  14. Jason

  15. Justin

  16. William

  17. Jonathan

  18. Adam

  19. Kevin

  20. Thomas

That’s a pretty eclectic bunch.

We imagine that, if you’ve spotted someone’s name on that list, you’re curious to know the reasoning behind it.

Well, it’s based on the fact that, in the UK, the average age that a man welcomes his first child is around 32 years old.

Using this, we then worked out that men who reach this oh-so-magical age in 2017 will have been born between 1985 and 1986.

We then used Google to find out the most popular baby boy names of those years and voila!

Pretty clever, huh?
