This Is The Most Common Name for Criminals in Texas
The same names keep coming up over and over on arrest records in Texas, but one name appears more than all the others. See if it's yours.
Protection1 looked at thousands of arrest records and compared the names on those reports with the most popular baby names from the Social Security Administration, and came up with the list of names by state the most commonly recur on crime stats.
And the big winner in Texas is... Johnny.
Do you work with a guy named Johnny? So do we! And he's awesome and would never hurt a flea. But if any other Johnnys walk in the room, be afraid. Be very afraid.
Johnny is the top criminal name in Virginia and Mississippi too. The most common name for criminals overall is Jeremy, but Randy, Terry, Bobby, Bryan, Christopher, and Brandon made the top 20. That list sounds like a rundown of messages on my dating app. Yikes.
Alan is the most common name for murderers across the US. Shh....everybody act cool. Alan just walked in.
It's a good thing our names are not Jenny. Or Johnny, Jeremy, or Jerry. Names that start with “J” and names that end with “y” dominate the top 20 list of criminal names.
On the Protection1 website they offer the chance to do a search with our own names, to see if we have a name that's common among those in jails and courts. I plugged in "Jennifer," and it turns out quite a few Jennifers commit robbery and drug-related offenses.
