The Most Popular Baby Names of 2013...Are Quite Surprising

Section: Girls baby names

According to the most popular baby names of 2013 aren't as exotic as you might have thought.

We've seen a whole host of of unusually named celebrity offspring this year, from Frankie Sandford's Parker, to Katie Price's Jett.

Then who can forget Kate Winslett's little baby Bear - and of course there's little North West (we still find ourself saying 'seriously' everytime we hear this one)  - but it seems that the civilian population have stayed a little more grounded and not taken much inspiration from the celebs at all when naming their little ones this year.

And the results are quite surprising - not even a tiny reference to a certain little man called George!
