These latest lists come after a report predicted some more unusual names expected to see a surge in popularity this year, including Romeo and Blossom.

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."
