Olivia was the most commonly chosen baby name of the year for girls, followed by Amelia in second place, meaning there was with no change in the top two from previous years either.

Arabella was the highest climbing girl’s name of the year, up 45 places to 42. This was followed by Myla which made an entrance in the Top 100 at 79, having moved up 39 places.

Following the trend for top 100 ‘old lady’ names, such as Ivy, Elsie and Florence, the name Iris climbed 36 places to 80 and was joined by Mabel which made a debut in the Top 100 at 82, rising a massive 85 places.

When it comes to boys names, the name Tommy and Finley both climbed the charts to the top twenty. The name Teddy (up 8 places), Arlo (up 18), Theodore (up 23) and Roman (also up 23 places) all rose up the chart.

Other hight climbers include Grayson (up 33 places to position 54), Ezra (up 21 places) along with Jude (up 20 places to position 49) and Ronnie (up 19 places to 52).

What Baby Names Are On The Decline This Year?

The girls names that fell from favour the most are royal family monikers Megan and Katie, which both plummeted over 100 places to positions 190 and 198 respectively. The once-popular name Lexi was down 26 places to position 91. Brooke, Maddison and Paige have also dropped out of the Top 100 this year.

Ironically, in 2020 the nation lost faith in choosing Faith as a name for baby girls. This year the name left the Top 100 to reside at position 125.

Falling from favour in the nation’s Top 20 favourite names for boys was Joshua, Logan and Ethan, names that now reside in turn at positions 25, 29 and 33.

Harvey was down 26 places to position 74, and the year also saw drops for Jayden (down 48 places to position 84) and Jake, along with more traditional names Luke, now at position 93, and Matthew, which is just holding on at 100.
