Nerys Lewis, head of credit cards at Confused.com, said: “While our research shows the names with the best and worst credit profiles in the UK, people’s names are obviously not a rating factor when looking at credit.
“So if you’re called Brian you won’t automatically be gifted with a great profile, or penalised because your name is Lisa.”
