Surrey baby name favourites buck national trend

Surrey baby name favourites buck national trend

Published at 9:39am 2nd May 2019.

Surrey babies are bucking the national trend, with over half of boys and girls not appearing in the nation's top 10 favourite names. 

In the UK there are more than 60,000 babies born every year. 

Each baby name is recorded by the Office for National Statistics, complied into a most popular list, and published.

The results reveal distinct fashions and trends, and year-on-year comparisons outline the rise and fall of popular and unusual names. 

The latest list, compiled in September last year, last year revealed that Oliver and Olivia remain the most popular names in England and Wales. 

Lets Explore Day Nursery - the new childcare facility in Horley set to open this summer - has found that half of boys and girls born in both Sussex and Surrey have names that did not appear on the UK’s top ten list. 

Favourites were names such as Matilda, Rose, Evie, Daisy, Evelyn and Grace for girls, and Max, William, Teddy, Alfie, Henry, Freddie, and Theo for boys.
