Looking for some baby name inspiration? A new list of monikers predicted to be huge in the next 10 years has been revealed...

If you have a little one on the way, you may be spending a great deal of time researching baby names on the hunt for the perfect moniker.

There have been a number of different categories of inspiration released this year, including 'lost' names making a comeback and even Bridgerton-inspired names.

Now, a new list has identified 40 baby names that are set to soar over the next decade - and some of them are absolutely adroable.

Pregnancy and parenting company Bounty tracked 300,000 UK baby names to identify the ones that were growing in popularity, and found that names like Romeo and Anastasia will experience a surge.

A spokesperson told Hull Live: "Having assessed over 300,000 names for the stand-out highest climbers over the last 12 months we can predict which exactly which name trends are set to take off.

"This is because, outside of official birth registration lists (which are published 18 months behind) ours is the largest, most up-to-date baby names list in the UK – making it guaranteed to bring you the latest trends in baby names."
