THERE’S NO GREATER sin an Irish person can commit than loving themselves.

Think about it: the phrase “He loves himself!” is never meant as a compliment, is it?

Now the good people at have determined that people named Declan and Patricia have the biggest egos in Ireland.

The dating website analysed data from 20,000 Irish single people to identify the first names of members with “the highest opinion of themselves”.

And having examined how users ranked themselves in terms of intelligence, faithfulness, sexiness, attractiveness and sense of humour, it was found that the top ten egotistical names for men were…

  1. Declan
  2. Frank
  3. Conor
  4. Brendan
  5. Richard
  6. Liam
  7. Kevin
  8. Peter
  9. Pat
  10. Dave

Meanwhile, the most egotistical names for women were…

  1. Patricia
  2. Susan
  3. Paula
  4. Angela
  5. Yvonne
  6. Joanne
  7. Ruth
  8. Deidre
  9. Fiona
  10. Clare

As for who had the least self-confidence? That would be gentlemen named Jamie and ladies named Rebecca.

Sounds like someone could learn a thing or two from Declan and Patricia, wha’?
