Sorry, I cannot work out how that question is relevant to me or the role. What would you like to know about me?

In 2013? None. Everyone born in 2013 had a surname too.

0% rounding to the nearest whole percentage. I'm actually really interested in finding out now, shall we do the maths? Do you want to do the maths?
They say
No > Tease
Yes > We do the maths and work it out! based on probability, we'll publish a paper on our findings, predict names in the future and alter out algorithm based on our successes and failures and amend as required. Start a business around baby names and then pitch to dragons den! If we succeed awesome! If we fail go back for the job again, if I get an interview and they ask that question, just be honest and tell them "It didn't matter"
