Apparently, Women Named This Are More Likely To Get Pregnant Next Year

Today in things that exist solely to distract you from getting actual work done: Apparently if your name is Jessica and you live in the United States, you’re probably going to get pregnant next year. Don’t worry Jessica, this isn’t part of some weird government experiment or anything. Inspired by (mocking?) findings in a UK publicationThe Cut discovered that the average age a woman in the US is a first-time mom is 28. Then, they looked up the most popular girls’ names from 1990 (2018 minus 28). Voilà—a list of people who are likely to get pregnant. Yes, some mental gymnastics are required to get to this very scientific conclusion. Yes, it’s silly. But, we also definitely wanted to know. Here’s the list:

1. Jessica
2. Ashley
3. Brittany
4. Amanda
5. Samantha
6. Sarah
7. Stephanie
8. Jennifer
9. Elizabeth
10. Lauren
11. Megan
12. Emily
13. Nicole
14. Kayla
15. Amber
16. Rachel
17. Courtney
18. Danielle
19. Heather
20. Melissa

It’s clickbait’s world, we’re just living in it. Also, very surprised only one “K” name made the list.
