These are the names of the women who (apparently) make the best wives

Depends what the definition of 'best' is.

Trine Jensen-Burke

What’s in a name, asked William Shakespeare.

Actually, a whole lot, it seems. At least if this new study is to be believed. has recently surveyed 2,000 people to find out the names of the women who make the best wives.

And while the website left us all hanging a bit as to what the details of what makes a good wife are (Good cook? Great in bed?! Irons a great shirt?), here are at least the names to look out for when picking your mate, lads:

1. Katie
2. Sophie
3. Louise
4. Sarah
5. Emily
6. Charlotte
7. Elizabeth
8. Amy
9. Jessica
10. Lucy

This is what a spokesman from Siteopia had to say about the survey:
“Every time we hear mention of a name we naturally associate particular values or impressions based on our past experiences. It seems certain names tend to crop up more than others when thinking about the qualities of a good husband or wife and the lists no doubt make interesting reading to many.”

So, there you go.
