UNIQUE BABY NAMES IN 2021
Are you expecting a baby in 2021?
It is commonly belief that baby names come back into fashion every decade or so.
That leaves us with the question of; what does this mean for new baby names in 2021?
According to the Office of National Statistics, these were the most popular baby names in the 1920s:
As of 2019 George and Arthur are the only names on this list still in the top 10.
What's very interesting is the dominance of "George", which as of 2019, was just one place behind "Oliver" at the top spot - no doubt this has been influenced by William and Kate's first child but we personally think "George" will soon rein... pun intended.
Here's some more food for thought - we put together a list of the ten most popular names in 2019 and turned it into a good old bar chart chase to see how they've evolved over time, see below.
