Tinder ranks its most swipeable names of the year

If you're desperate to get more matches on Tinder, a simple name change could go a long way.

The infamous dating app has released its most swiped-right-for names, and users blessed with the names Hannah and Lucas got the most matches in 2016.

Emma, Lauren, Julia and Emily round out the five most popular names for women, while Ryan, Matthew, Nick and Josh are the remaining popular men's names.

Swiping right indicates interest in another user. If two users swipe right for each other, they're matched and can have a conversation.

Meanwhile, a left swipe is an internet-era rejection.
