With Tinder all about first impressions and snap judgments, a person's name carries a lot of weight, in addition to their duckface and/or abs.

The hookup dating app released the stats on the most right-swiped names of 2016, and it looks like people have a thing for names that align with famous characters and celebrities.

For the women, swipers also favor popular names as seen on TV, with Hannah (Girls!), Emma (Stone! Watson!), and Lauren (The Hills! Graham!) taking the gold, silver, and bronze.

And the winners are:


1. Hannah

2. Emma

3. Lauren

4. Julia

5. Emily

6. Rachel

7. Samantha

8. Katie

9. Anna

10. Sara

For the dudes, the top three names are Lucas (Star Wars AND Gilmore Girls), Ryan (Gosling! Reynolds!) and Matthew (Matt, if ya nasty).

Here are the top ten:

1. Lucas

2. Ryan

3. Matthew

4. Nick

5. Josh

6. Brandon

7. Justin

8. Ben

9. Adam

10. Andrew


As Metro UK points out, the popular names on Tinder in 2016 align with the popular names for babies between 1984 and 1994, reflecting the age of the app's users according to the Office for National Statistics's historical data.

No surprise that Hillary and Donald did not crack the top ten in 2016. But in all likelihood, Hillary is more popular even if Donald gets more matches
