The most popular baby names in 2019 surprised us

Naming a baby is a mammoth responsibility – choosing the moniker that your child will be known as for the rest of their life, and potentially shaping the person they become.

Should you go traditional or opt for a celebrity-style curveball name like Apple or Blue?

The most important thing to ensure when naming your baby is that the moniker in question is actually legal – yes, there are a lot of banned baby names that you definitely need to avoid – everything from ‘Traffic’ to ‘James Bond’.

But what baby names are in fashion?

Well, luckily for us, British parenting site Baby Centre has done some digging in data from actual births, compiling a list of the most popular baby names of 2019 so far, but anything can change – there’s already been a huge surge in popularity for the name ‘Archie’.
