But it's not just the MP's surname that people are considering naming their child, as Jeremy is also creeping back into fashion with 15% of parents asked saying they would consider calling their child after his first name.

But on the bright side for the Prime Minister, 38% of those asked did say they would consider naming their child May.

And lastly, in an unsurprising set of results only 5% of parents said they would consider calling their child Boris, inspired by the Home Secretary Boris Johnson!
