For no other reason than i'm a nosy bugger. I was wondering what names you have seen grow in popularity this year, have there been any surprises?

So one boys name and one girls.

Boy - Ralph / Ralphie

Girl - Luna

The last two babies I know that have been born have been called Ralph and Luna, so you may well be right!

Agree that both are already quite popular, I've also heard the name Ada for girls and Remy used a lot lately for boys

My son was going to be Rowan but we changed our minds. Seems like it’s rocketing in popularity, along with Roman, as I see it mentioned here all the time! Haven’t met either IRL though.

A bit NI specific, but every second girl I’ve heard of being born recently has been called Fiadh

Hunter and Roman are booming, have met lots of babies with those names. Wasn’t surprised to read they were officially last years’ fastest rising names within top 100.

In terms of girls’ names, I know two baby Matilda’s but I think that’s maybe just a coincidence because it wasn’t one of the fastest rising names last year

Roman just makes me think of Roman Polanski, the child rapist.
