The next Presidential election is less than a year away. Nine months ago, there were a staggering 25 Democratic presidential candidates. How will people  choose the right candidate?

What sets one apart from the rest? It may very well be their name. Nameclouds is a baby name research tool that can also provide some insight into each democratic candidate.

What’s in a Name?

With the next election just around the corner, it’s important to learn all you can about the candidates.  The thing you hear the most about a candidate is their name, and understanding what feelings a name evokes may be suggestive of each candidate’s prospects.   Here are some of the interesting facts you can learn about each candidate’s name with the Nameclouds app.

Joseph Biden

Joseph Biden is currently the leading Democratic contender. Does that match what Nameclouds says about him? Actually, yes. The name “Joseph” is perceived as both traditional and very liberal, which is likely to appeal to a broad range of voters. “Joseph” is still one of the most popular names throughout the country, although  parents aren’t as likely as they were in previous years to name their baby “Joseph.”

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders is a powerhouse of a human being. It’s fitting, then, that the name “Bernie” means “bear” or “brave as a bear.” He doesn’t back down and it’s not difficult to see him standing up to bear-like opposition, seeing how quickly he returned to the campaign trail after a heart attack. The names “Bernard” and “Bernie” are currently so rare that little can be said about what people think of them. In name as in person, Bernie sanders is a real wild card!

Elizabeth Warren

Of all the places in the U.S., the name “Elizabeth” is most popular in Wyoming. How does this bode for candidate Elizabeth Warren? According to the poll site FiveThirtyEight, Ms. Warren is by far  the top candidate in that state, with over 80% preference. Who said that names don’t matter?

Pete Buttigieg

While his last name is uncommon, Pete Buttigieg’s first name is far from rare, and it is the only one among the major candidate’s names that is not currently trending down. Maybe the South Bend (IN) mayor’s fate in the campaign will also trend up?
