The site said: "These are the names that got the most views on our site this year. 

"They’re the ones on name-savvy parents’ (or future parents’) minds, so they’re a pretty good measure of what will be hot in the year ahead."

Luna came out top for girls, knocking previous favourite Olivia out of first place.
