Men called Mark, Rob and Pete also narrowly missed out on the list of the top 10 most reliable husband names.

A spokesman said: “Every time we hear mention of a name we naturally associate particular values or impressions based on our past experiences.

“It seems certain names tend to crop up more than others when thinking about the qualities of a good husband or wife and the lists no doubt make interesting reading to many.

“Of course, people shouldn't be judged on a name alone, so while men like David and Andrew seem to be top of the pile, they've still got to uphold that reputation day to day.”
