The rarest baby names in the UK have been revealed


by Ellie Kirwin-Jones |

Every parent dreams of their children having the prettiest or the coolest baby names that stand out from the crowd.

A name that's unusual enough that five children won't have the same name at playgroup!

Earlier this year, we brought you the most popular baby names of 2019, now we have the RAREST baby names across the UK.

Interesting, eh!

The Office for National Statistics has a record of all of the baby names given each year, and the 2017 list of baby names has some pretty rare ones.

The ONS revealed that Hansel made an appearance, and of course, we couldn't help spotting the name Prue on there, which we all recognise from The Great British Bake Off restaurateur, Prue Leith.

Here are our favourite monikers from the rarest baby names list:

The first is the pretty name, Adelaide. The name Adelaide came from the noble German princess who married British King William IV in 1830. Adelaide grew a reputation and was known as Good Queen Adelaide. Adelaide was even chosen by Katherine Heigl for her baby girl.
