Isabella & Daniel ranked the top names for ghosting

According to the research, you might want to steer clear of any Isabellas or Daniels, because they’re statistically more likely to ghost you. However, anyone called Emily or Harry is a little bit more reliable – they’re the least likely to abandon a conversation or relationship. And anyone feeling stung over being ghosted can delight in some karmic justice – Mia is the third most likely girl to vanish on you, but one of the most likely to be ghosted.
