Top names are Oliver and Olivia.

Summer, Maddison, Lacey, Jayden, Tyler & Harley? An influx of Americans or just stupid American names?

According to today's news, Mohammed with all it's spelling permutations is currently ranked no.1 in the Uk followed by Oliver and Jack. Not surprising really.

Mine's not on the list.

Daresay there will be a lot of Ollies running around in the short future.

But otherwise not bad. Lots of straightforward traditional names. Nowhere nearly as trendy the American top 100 would be.

lol - a friend called her little boy Oliver and her sister had a daughter called Olivia.

Check, check

Hmm... and both my two are kind of middle-of-the-range popular. Good good.
