Whilst a variety of baby names are coming into fashion for 2018, there are also those that are failing to appeal to future parents.

Despite many 'traditional' names making a comeback, there are a fair few monikers that are falling out of favour with mums and dads-to-be.

So far this year, the most popular baby names for 2018 are Olivia and Sophie for a girl, and Muhammad and Oliver for a boy. 

However, the likes of Arnold and Roxanne are well on their way to dying out, according to a recent survey.
