The baby names predicted to be all the rage in 2020


by Ellie Kirwin-Jones |

If you've been looking over this year's popular baby names and you're still far away from making a decision, our predictions for 2020 are here.

From baby Greta's and Harrison's to the little Ronnie's and Maisie's, maybe one of these will be the one.

Looking at the baby names in England and Wales in 2018, regionally, Olivia was the most popular name for girls throughout England and Wales, according to the Office of National Statistics.

Nick Stripe from the National Statistics said, "the name Arthur surged into the top 10 boys’ names for the first time since the 1920s, and Ada jumped into the girls’ top 100 for the first time in a century too, both perhaps inspired by characters in the BBC TV drama Peaky Blinders".

The statistics are based only on live births that occurred in the calendar year, as there is no public register of stillbirths.

Look ahead to 2020 and see what names Mother&Baby predict will be staying popular and those that are making a comeback. Of course, Meghan and Olivia are still up there...
