Seeing a theme here?

The survey found that Latin and French names scored particularly well, as did male names ending in "o" and female names ending in "a."

And names featuring double letters scored better than their single-letter counterparts (Adriana vs. Adrianna), the website's founder told LiveScience.

She explained: "One thing that leaps out at you is that we do have a mostly American and English-speaking user base, and Americans still have the image of the Latin lover.

"These names are Italian and Spanish and French. You can even go Russian, with Dmitri… [it's all down to that] element of fantasy."

On the other end of the spectrum, there are the most unsexy names of all time…

According to the site's founder, these names are too 'ordinary' to be sexy - and some of them feel 'old and clunky'.

She added: "They all have very high 'Scrabble' values, but today's style in names is very light, full of vowels, very smooth.

"The double consonants in the middle of some — Gertrude and Mildred for example — sound heavy."

Hmmm - we're not so sure. They certainly have their old school charm, don't they?
