The names I hear all the time are:

Isabella
Sophia
Evie
Olivia

Thomas
Charlie
Henry
Jack

What are yours? I thought 4 was a good number to avoid those really long lists!

(FWIW I love all of these names, I'm just interested in local trends)

don't know about babies as mine are older now but am pretty sure they are going to be different to the ones posted above!
think have recently heard a lot of Keely/kayleigh/Kyle type names.

Not sure I know enough kids to confidently give a top 4, but having just moved house and only about 50 miles it is noticeable that the top names are different

Old home:
Oscar
Finn

New home:
Freddie
Generally boys' names beginning with an "f" e.g. Finn, Flynn, Ferdie
Then:
Jasper
Charlie

Girls (old haven't met many girls since moving)
Isabelle
Amelie
Olivia
Imogen
