Oliver continues to top the charts as the number 1 name chosen for boys. Harry remains at position 2 and George remains unchanged at position 5 proving that the nation loves its little princes.


New comer, Freddie has moved up 1 place to proudly reside in the Top 10 at position 10 while Jack has dropped 3 places - but is still safely in the top 10 at position 6.

Highest climbing boys names this year

This decade’s continuing trend of bringing back traditional names for boys is demonstrated by the Theodore which has shot up 26 places to position 53. However, unusual names are also on the rise with Oakley climbing 18 places and breaking into the top 100. 

The birth of Prince Louis in 2018 also stirred the popularity of names Louis and Louie, which are both up 19 and 17 places respectively, to positions 66 and 39.

Peaky Blinders theme continues to reign

The cult status of the Shelby brothers in Peaky Blinders continues to determine the baby names choices for many new parents. Tommy rose again (up 8 places to position 29), Arthur (up 4 places to position 14). However, Finn is down (7 places to position 91) and the last Shelby brother, John hasn’t made it in to the top 100 at all.

Baby boys’ names on the decline    

Oscar drops out of the top 10 this year, down 1 place to position 11. Traditional choice, Samuel is down 9 places to position 64 and other old-style, established names for boys that are also on the decline include Sebastian down 13 places to 52. Once a regular Top 20 name, Jake has plummeted in popularity and is now in position 42 and contemporary favourite Connor is down 14 places to 82.

Time honoured, Biblical names on the decrease this year include David which has dropped 6 places to position 67 and Luke down 6 places to position 78. 

Other, once considered trend names, are also on a decline. These include Callum down 3 places to position 81 and Jenson which rocketed in the charts in 2011 on the back of Jenson Button’s popularity, is down 4 places to position 70.
