Online marketplace has asked 3,000 of its British customers about their spending habits to find out who's more frugal and who's happy to flash the cash.

The results suggest people called Matt and Emma are more careful, with Joshua and Karen topping the list of shopaholic names.

Cas Paton, founder of, said: ''With thousands of people going through our site daily, we see a host of shopping habits and trends, whether that's by name, age or location.

''Therefore, we thought it would be fascinating to see which names are synonymous with the top spenders onsite, and also the names of those who are more careful with their money, opting for deals and discounts over full-priced products.

''Who knew there's such a common parallel with names and shopping habits, there seems to be a lot more to a name than we initially thought.''
