If you are looking for love online then you better hope your name is not Barry.

Barry was the least successful name nationally on the FindSomeone website for 2011.

Men named Rod and Brad had more luck with the ladies as their names topped the ''hottest'' male names list.

FindSomeone manager Rick Davies devised a formula adding up the number of smiles and messages a person received to determine the hottest names in the country.

However, the hottest names were not necessarily the most successful.

Men named Cameron had the most luck around the country, taking the honours of the most successful name for 2011.

Mr Davies said success was determined by people leaving the site stating that they had found love through FindSomeone.

In Wellington, Fiona and Daniel were the most successful names. The least successful in the region were Barry and Angela.

Nationally, the most successful women's name was Mel followed closely by Tina. However, men found Becky the hottest name.

Jacqueline had little success in 2011 topping the least successful list of women's names.

All is not lost for those whose name appears on the least successful list.

Mr Davies advised those called Barry or Jacqueline to upload lots of photographs.

''Forget the sleaze, and take care and attention when filling in your profile.''

Poor spelling and grammar could also put off people looking for a date, Mr Davies said.

''It's about advertising yourself to attract a potential partner.''
