I've got a little Oscar which I didn't think was that common but I seem to have met loads at clinics, swimming and baby groups lately. Also Edward seems to be popular atm. For girls Lily, Ruby and Mia seem quite popular

LibertyGibbet Sat 14-Aug-10 11:37:11

Oscar is very popular indeed here and has been for a few years.

Edward is apparently on the rise because of those books.

Also:

Jayden/kayden/Hayden/Brayden I've heard around town lately all blurgh imho especially Brayden. Makes me think of donkeys for some reason.

tummytickler Sat 14-Aug-10 16:17:04

Apart from the usual I have noticed a few Agnes' and Willows this year. rather a lot in fact (I work with newborns which is why i have met so many grin).

Also rather more 'rose' names that aren't Rose. Rosemary, Rosamund, Rosalind etc.

Can't think for boys, just more of the same i think. Arthur and Stanley are about to go through the roof i think, soooo many of those born lately.

lulabellamozerella Sat 14-Aug-10 16:28:40

I don't know why but Jody for a boy is getting really popular around here (I know 4 who've been born in the last year)

MrsvWoolf Sat 14-Aug-10 18:43:17

In my personal experience:

Dorothy, Agatha (I now know of four), Felix, Florence, Wilfred.

The last 3 baby girls that I know have been called Eve, Eve and Evie.

The last few boys have been Jack or Max

AT1137 Sat 14-Aug-10 20:43:51

Eve, Evie, Oliver, George, Ruby - nearly EVERY baby boy I know of born recently is an Oliver and nearly every girl is an Evie or Eve!

Florence, Lola, Eloise, Elise and Felix all seem to be increasing in popularity.
