Men named Wayne are considered the least trustworthy when it comes to maintaining faithful relationships, but women are more likely to encounter a man named Scott, seventh on the list.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 15, 2014

WhitePages, the leading provider of contact information for people and businesses in the U.S., today revealed a list of the top male names in the United States most associated with cheating on their partners. Based on data from WhitePages.com and a recent U.K. study of unlucky-in-love ladies and gentlemen, men named Wayne are considered the least trustworthy when it comes to maintaining faithful relationships, but women are more likely to encounter a man named Scott, the name that took the seventh spot on the original list of men with a wandering eye. Lovers should also be on the lookout for Mark and Matthew, who took the second and third spots based on popularity of the name, respectively.

“It’s interesting to compare this list with the list of names from the U.K. For instance, Liam has always been a popular name across the pond, is now the second most popular boy’s name in the U.S., and rounds out our list of those most likely to cheat,” said Liz Powell, Culture and Trend Expert from WhitePages. “While we don’t recommend breaking up with your significant other just because their name falls on this list, it is an interesting tidbit for couples.”

The U.K. list resulted from a study of 2,000 women and their experiences with men, and Wayne, Liam, and Ryan, topped the list for names of unfaithful partners. WhitePages looked at how these notorious names ranked in terms of popularity here in the U.S.:
