there are more than three times as many Eleanors at Oxford than we might expect, given the frequency of that first name among girls in the general population *

It turns out you should call your baby 'Eleanor'. This is absolutely true. When researchers called all the women at Oxford University to ask them for their names, almost all replied 'Eleanor'. Conversely, there are names you should avoid: women with these names have often never even visited the town, let alone attended the University.

Using the same metric we, a collective of artists who feel we deserve serious critical acclaim, undertook similar research into the defining feature of the artists that have achieved the highest levels of respect within the Art World. Without exception all have, at sometime or other, been referred to as 'Successful Artists'.

The conclusion is irrefutable.


We immediately named ourselves SUCCESSFUL ARTISTS.


The results have been startling.
