Is there such a thing as an attractive name? When it comes to online dating, personal preference is of course a huge factor, but apparently, people with certain names might just have more luck than others.

Okay, so you probably wouldn't date someone solely based on their name. But according to Tinder, there are particular names that might make you more likely to swipe right. The dating app has released a list of the most right-swiped names in the U.S. in 2016, and it is fascinating.

Again, names are of course not the be-all, end-all of dating, but if you've been curious as to who's getting all the love on Tinder and why, this list just might provide some insight into one factor. And while the attractiveness of someone's name is certainly subjective, if you've ever swiped left on someone because they had the same name as your ex, you probably get the point.

Take a look ahead at the most right-swiped names of 2016, for both men and women. And, of course, do a self-congratulatory fist pump if yours made the list.
