Selecting a name for your little one can be a big decision. Will your moniker of choice suit them? Will they have to grow into it? Or will they live a life of irritation as they grapple with mild teasing and mispronunciations.

It really is a lot of responsibility to bear.

With this in mind it is up to you as to whether you play is safe and head down the traditionally route, choosing a name that has stood the test of time and is basically inoffensive to all, or dare to set your child apart from the crowd and call them something unique as they themselves are.

Another factor that might help your decision is finding out what is popular in the specific are of the UK that you live.

The Office of National Statistics has used data from 2018 (which is the most recent census) to find out the top 10 boys and girls name in different regions of country.

Examining this will enable you to make sure your kid either fits in with their peers, or give you forewarning of names to avoid if you want them to be the only one on their class register.

Of course some names, such as Oliver and George for boys and Amelia and Olivia for girls, seem to be fashionable countrywide, but it is still interesting how names differ in areas of the UK.
