Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.

My friend just told me that BOTH my boys names are in the Top 10 most popular this year as written in the newspaper this week...

I am not surprised at DS1's name being in the list, but thought DS2's would not be that popular!!

Think it might have been the Daily Mail this week.

Anyone care to guess what the names are? grin

I have never come across an Alfie. Is that really in the top ten??? that one hasn't hit the shores of Ireland yet. ALl the others popular enough though.

Lizzylou Fri 09-Jan-09 18:36:48

We know a lot of Olivers, all around DS2's age (almost 3)DS1 is on the list, DS2 isn't on the list.
I think it depends on where you live, people are always saying "There are so many Harry's" and we know of only 1 in these parts

singyswife Fri 09-Jan-09 18:36:49

Is it Theo??

DS1 is just 3 yrs. I guess thats a populare age for Olivers!

LizzieLou - prize goes to you.... DS2 is Edward!
We call him Ted though and apparently it was Ted that was listed in the top 10 rather than Edward..
