22 wonderfully posh baby names

Section: Baby names

Choosing a name for your new arrival can be a tricky task. 

Do you go for an old-fashioned classic? Perhaps a pretty name? A moniker on the top 2019 list?

Then there is the demise of lots of once-loved names becoming 'unpopular'  due to their new-found meanings in the modern world. Like Alexa? Yep, mums are avoiding it because of Amazon's digital assistant. 

But maybe you're after a plummy name for your little darling that will definitely turn a few heads during the morning register.
