Top 10 Most Popular Babies’ Names Revealed

27 Oct


The most popular names given to babies born in England and Wales in 2009 have been revealed. And the winners are….drum roll please… Oliver for the boys and Olivia for the girls.

Oliver has risen from 2nd in 2008, to knock Jack off the top spot for the first time in 14 years. Olivia meanwhile is the most popular girls’ name, just beating Ruby for the second year running.

Here at ForeignStudents.com we have been trying to think of celebrities who may have inspired the two winners to victory, but there are slim pickings. For the boys there is director Oliver Stone, (though we can’t think of many people who would name their baby after him), whilst for the girls there is ‘House’ actress Olivia Wilde. Not exactly A-listers I think you’ll agree.

Here are the full lists:
