West/South Yorkshire is full of 5/6 year old Olivers and Niamhs and 3 year old Amelias and Daniels. Loads of Isaacs everywhere too.

I'm Midlands too and was going to say Isabella (or Isabel) and Amy. Sophie too.

Boys, Jack and Tom stand out as being popular.

I'm in Hertfordshire and I'd say the most popular names at my DC's school are Henry / Harry, Jake / Jacob, Oliver and Amelia / Millie.

I'm in the East Midlands and , by far, the most popular names seem to be Evie and Harry and Benjamin. My daughters reception class has 4 Benjamin's and 5 variations of Evie.

Lots of Ava's and Ella's for the girls.

Boys there seems to be a wider range of boys names but Shay and Oscar are two which seem very popular.
