Top 100 girls names 474

The UK’s favourite top 3 names given to girls in the last year remains unchanged as Olivia, Amelia and Isla keep hold of positions 1, 2 and 3. What’s more, the top 10 this year is virtually unchanged other than Ella (moving up 3 places to position 10) and Grace (up 4 places to position 7). 

Modern, popular choices, Isabella and Sophie are still missing out on reaching the top 10 and are holding position 13 and 14 respectively.

Highest climbing girls’ names this year

Traditional name Ada continues to rise again this year up 61 places to position 73 and Bonnie is up 11 places to 77. 
Contrastingly, the invented, millennial name, Nevaeh (Heaven spelt backwards) is also up 27 places to position 88.

Is there a new trend emerging in girls’ names?

As with boys’ names, where Tommy has seen a huge spike, Peaky Blinders seems to have a big influence on name choices for girls. Tommy Shelby’s sister was called Ada which is the highest climbing girls name this year and his wife’s name, Grace is back on the up, climbing up 4 places to position 7. His brother John’s wife, Esme, may be the reason for the name moving up to position 32. Yet auntie Polly remains an outsider at 234.

Baby girls’ names on the decline 

The once trendy name Darcey which last shot up the charts when Dame Darcey Bussell joined Strictly Come Dancing in 2012, is losing favour down 11 places and just holding on in the top 100 at position 97. Another once popular name on the decline is Jasmine which is down 11 places and heading down the top 100 at position 87.

Traditional girls’ names are also losing favour, and despite the nation’s fixation with ITV’s The Crown, Elizabeth is down 5 places to position 66, and once popular Amelie is down 6 places to position 90.
