This Is What Everyone Called Their Baby In 2018

Drum roll, please...

For the third year in a row, Nameberry has revealed Olivia to be the most popular name for girls, while the To Kill A Mockingbird inspired Atticus came out on top for the boys.

Curiously, Boo didn't make the list.

The impact of the royal family was also clearly evident, with Charlotte coming in fifth for girls, while Louis soared in popularity.

There also seemed to be a focus on more traditional names this year, with Otto, Magnus, Cordelia, Clementine and Mabel all sneaking into the top 100.

Hal -- boy, nickname for Henry

Koa -- boy, of Hawaiian origin meaning "warrior"

Nameberry is also predicting we'll see a range of monikers -- inspired by everything from Ancient Greece to Buddhism, pastel hues and bygone eras -- on birth certificates next year.

These include:

Zen -- boy/girl, of Japanese origin, a school of Mahayana Buddhism

Rama -- girl, of Sanskrit origin, meaning "lofty"

Kali -- girl, of Sanskrit origin meaning "black one"

Manu -- boy, of Polynesian origin, meaning "bird of the night; man"

Non-binary names are also set to be huge next year, with the likes of Revel, Briar and Story all set to take off.
