‘Cheeky' name is most popular choice for boys
The list, compiled by the Office For National Statistics, gives the top names for new arrivals in England and Wales and shows that Harry has climbed from third to first, replacing Oliver as favourite.
‘From Prince Harry to Harry Potter and Harry Styles, every mum has a favourite Harry,’ says Netmums founder Siobhan Freegard.
‘The name has become classless and suggests cheeky fun, so it’s perfectly suited to bouncing baby boys.’
‘Both Harry and Amelia are posh names which have been embraced by the public,’ Siobhan tells the Daily Star.
‘It’s interesting to see them overtake some of the more unusual celebrity-driven monikers.
‘It seems mums are steering away from the unusual and back to the more traditional names, but with a twist.’
