Have you ever wondered what the name of your future spouse will be? Or, how the first name of your intended could determine if you have a lavish wedding or somewhat thrifty? This concept inspired British online marketplace, OnBuy.com to investigate –with some very interesting results.
To achieve the figures, OnBuy.com utilised Adzuna’s ‘ValueMyName’ tool. To create the tool, Adzuna took data from over 500,000 CVs uploaded to ‘ValueMyCV’ and extracted their first name and salary. This allowed the company to provide an average (mean) salary for 1,200 first names.
