Our Facebook newsfeeds are constantly filled with memes that claim "these are the names of people who are most likely to ...".

But this list is the real deal... well according to a recent survey anyway.

If your name appears on the list below, there's a VERY good chance you’ll win the lotto.

Website Jackpot.com - who have been collecting data since 1995 - have compiled the most common lotto winning names.

If your name isn't listed below, we reckon you could just legally change it and be a winner anyway! 

So without further ado, here’s the list of the top five names most likely to win:

  1. Derek
  2. David/Dave
  3. Alex
  4. John
  5. Karen

They also found that those with these professions won more often:

  1. Builders
  2. Carpenters
  3. Mechanics

If you have a builder called Derek in your life then they need to get down to the Lotto store pronto...
