Do you feel like your man has a proposal waiting for you just around the corner? If so, we may have the confirmation you’re looking for…

Here at Hitched HQ, we’ve figured out a way to find out the names of men most likely to propose in 2017.

Using the results from our 21st Century Bride 2017 survey, we were able to work out the names of men most likely to propose in 2017 by taking the average age of a groom, taking away the 12 months that the average couple are engaged for, and then finding the most popular baby names from the year they were born.

But did your other half’s name make the list?
