The most popular baby names in England and Wales from 2019 have been revealed.

Oliver and Olivia have been announced as last year's most popular baby names for boys and girls respectively, topping the list together for the fourth year in a row.

The top 100 girls and boys names in England and Wales, which was this week published by the Office for National Statistics, has seen Oliver come top since 2013, and Olivia since 2016.

Boys' newcomers entering the top 100 include Alfred, Chester, Hudson, Ibrahim and Oakley, replacing Alex, Dexter, Dominic, Kai, Sonny and Tobias.

Mabel entered the top 100 girls' names for the first time since 1924, and entered the list alongside other newcomer Lara - both replacing Aisha and Francesca.

David Corps from the Office for National Statistics said: "Oliver and Olivia continued their reign as the top boys’ and girls’ names in 2019, but analysis shows choices in baby names can differ depending on the mother’s age.

"We found younger mothers opted for more modern girls’ names like Harper, which has seen a rise since the Beckhams named their daughter so in 2011, and shortened boys’ names like Freddie.

"In contrast, older mothers chose more traditional names such as Jack and Charlotte.

"Popular culture continues to influence the baby names landscape. Following Dua Lipa’s first UK number one single in 2017, the number of girls named Dua has doubled from 63 to 126 in 2019."
