What names seem to be really popular among other babies in your area? Are there really lots of Isobels?

I don't have friends or family with babies so my experience is very limited but my next door neighbour has a Sophie and the girl the other side has just had a Charlie, there is a Sophie opposite us too.

Yes the few I've met recently have been Sophie too. It is such a cute name - I wonder whether they'll all mind when they grow up? I had a best friend with the same name as me when I was a kid and actually rather liked it.

Yep I know 3 Isobel's, also a few mollie, Millie, Adam, ruby, Archie, s.

Amelia! Such a lovely name - interesting to hear that it really is true about the top names being everywhere.

Under 1's I know are Cara, Emma, Evie, Mya, Ryan, Riley, Henry. I don't actually know any with the more 'popular' names such as Amelia, Emily, Isobel, Olivia!

I have an Amelia. Was gutted when it came out as no 1 girls name for 2011 but funnily enough we don't know any Amelia's and there are none at her preschool, nursery or any if the classes we do. Weird!

George and Isla are the most popular within my group of friends (different sets) with there being 3 of each.

Lots of Isabel's or variations, and lots of Harry and William's when it comes to boys.

Haven't met many Grace's. Quite a few Connie's too actually.
