A recent survey looked at which names are most common among models, and therefore the most objectively attractive, and found that a handful of appellations stood out. While there are some iconic models whose names we can't forget—think Naomi, Adriana, Tyra, Iman, and Tyson—there are other names that come up far more frequently in the industry.
To get this data, jewellery box looked at 4,000 models—half male and half female—from those who walk the runway to print ad standouts in order to identify the most common names in modeling. The company also grouped derivatives together to create a more holistic list.
According to the data, Anna—along with derivatives of the name, such as Anne—is the most common name among female models. The research showed that 23 models have that name. Currently, some of the most famous models bearing the name include Anna Ewers and Anna Cleveland. On the male side, the data showed that the most common name is David or Dave, with 23 models answering to that. David Gandy is a primary example, with Vogue calling him "one of the most famous male models in the world."
