Parents choose baby names in all sorts of ways, from the conventional — like naming a child after a beloved relative—to the decidedly unconventional, like posting names on a white board outside the delivery room and asking nurses and passersby to vote on their favorite. Chances are no one chooses their child’s name based on how many people with that name get into car crashes or have their cars stolen.

But in the tongue-in-cheek spirit of giving parents-to-be one more thing to consider, ERIE compared the Social Security Administration’s annual list of the most popular baby names with its claims data to rank which names have the most car accident claims and which names’ cars are stolen the most.

“Of course we don’t think parents should use this information when choosing a name because a person’s name has no bearing whatsoever on anything related to their insurance,” says Matt Myers, senior vice president of claims, Erie Insurance. “But people are fascinated by baby names, and as a car insurance provider we have claims data that can be correlated to names. We thought we’d share the information knowing that people will find it interesting.” Myers jokes that his own daughter didn’t consult him before choosing the name Eleanor for his newborn second grandchild.
