David and Sarah add up for accountancy

Research unveils most popular names for qualified accountants, though diversity revealed in range

According to recruitment agency
Badenoch & Clark, David and
Sarah are the most popular names in the accountancy profession, with John and
Helen coming a close second.

Searching a database of 25,000 ICAEW, ACCA, CIMA and CIPFA members, the
agency also uncovered a wide range of names, including Bonaventure, Goodluck and
Zowie.

Andy Powell, director at Badenoch & Clark, said: ‘Our database… shows a
far reaching range of names which underscores the diversity of the professions.’
However, the research also revealed the profession to still be male dominated,
despite employers efforts to address the inbalance between men and women in the
profession.

The top five male names were: David, John, Paul, Andrew and Michael. The most
popular female names were: Sarah, Helen, Claire, Emma and Rachel.
