    What’s in a name? Without quoting Shakespeare too much, what you’re called or what you call your baby can tell you a lot about when you might cross a milestone in your life. For example, these names are likely to be fitter and these names are predicted to get pregnant this year.

    We’ve already seen the trendiest baby names of this year and even, the poshest baby names (thanks for that George and Charlotte), and now it seems that names are regional too.

    Character Cottages and parenting website Bounty surveyed over 350,000 baby names around the UK to match the most popular names with the baby’s residing city. Some names, like Olivia and Jack, were popular across the UK while others like Muhammed were very London-centric. Here are the full results:
