Choosing your baby’s name is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make… little bubs will be stuck with it until he or she is at least 18 years old. Going different is all very well (though try telling that to David Bowie’s son, ‘Zowie Bowie’); however, it’s quite often better to stick with the tried and tested faves. If you’re in the process of choosing a name for your forthcoming arrival, a quick look at some of the current popular baby names may just give you a little bit of inspiration. 

According to popular baby names resource Nameberry, the most popular girls names of 2016 so far have seen some movement in the top places, with Olivia unseating Charlotte for the number 1 girls name. Charlotte is still holding number 1 in the US and UK rankings, however, given a boost last year when Princess Charlotte was added to William and Kate’s royal brood.

There has not been much movement for boys names with the biblical Ezra continuing to dominate the top spot as it did in 2015. There are only two new entrants into the boys top 10 and they are Levi and Wyatt. 

Here are the full Top 10’s for boys and girls so far in 2016:

Poor old Zowie eventually changed his name by deed poll to plain old Duncan Jones and we can only speculate on the amount of hours counselling he has received since!
