    While some baby names are at serious risk of extinction, it seems that others are more popular than ever. And while a lot of celebrities around us opt for names that are a lot more original (Bear Payne, we’re looking at you), it seems the vast majority of us like fairly common names for our bouncing bundles of joy.

    Parenting website Bounty and Character Cottages have researched the most popular names in the UK by city, based on over 350,000 babies all over the country, and it probably won’t surprise you to see that the most popular baby names of 2016 feature quite heavily.
