UNIQUE BABY NAMES IN 2021 - Belle Baby


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:


# Rank
1 John Margaret
2 William Mary
3 George Joan
4 James Joyce
5 Thomas Dorothy
6 Ronald Kathleen
7 Kenneth Doris
8 Robert Irene
9 Arthur Elizabeth
10 Frederick Eileen



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.


Boys - Key Takeaways:

  • Jack toped the list for 12 years from '96, now in 7th place
  • Oliver has reigned since 2012
  • Noah is trending from not even in the top 100 to 3rd place as of 2018



Girls - Key Takeaways:

  • 50% of the top 10 were also in the top 10 in 1996
  • Olivia had the top spot for a decade from '96, only to be overtaken first by Grace and then Amelia - As of 2019 Olivia is back at the top
  • Isla only entered the top ten in 2005 - now at an impressive 3rd place
