If you’re still sifting through baby names and deciding which to pick, this fun tool may be able to help. Created by USDirect.com, it shows people what their first name is most famous for.

The tool uses data collected from a team at USDirect.com and looked at thousands of famous first names across five categories: musicians, authors, actors/actresses, athletes and politicians. This includes the names of US Presidents dating back to the 1800s, old-time Hollywood hunks from the 1920s, several Olympic athletes and more. The team looked at the percentage of names in each of the five categories and calculated the most common occupation for that name.

Watch, Predictions for Rat Chinese Zodiac Baby:  

While the tool unfortunately isn’t functional for all names, the team found that the top 40 most famous names are all traditional male names, including John, William, George and Charles. They also found that the names Jack and Jane dominate the actor and actress categories.

When they plugged Joe Exotic into the tool, they found he would be most famous for being a musician—which is ironic considering his “side-hustle” as a country singer. Meanwhile, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would be most famous as an athlete and author, respectively—perhaps they should consider a career switch!

Wondering what careers baby’s possible names (or your name) are destined to be most famous for? Find out here. Not only may it help you settle on a baby name, it will also help you pass some time in quarantine!
