If you're expecting a little one and after after some name inspo, an expert has predicted the names set to be big next month...
There's no doubt that Bridgerton has been a huge part of our lives since its release, with a whopping 63 million households tuning into the Netflix show in its first few weeks.
And it looks like the show could even have an impact on future baby names - as experts from Datingroo, has predicted that Bridgerton-inspired baby names like Daphne will be among the most popular next month.
Relationship expert, Alexander Patall from Datingroo commented: "Popular culture is always a source of inspiration for new baby names.
“It will be interesting to see how events such as the US election even down to new Netflix releases will shape the naming trends of those born now and into February, and whether these names will continue to grow in popularity throughout 2021."
Bridgerton-inspired names that could be popular include Daphne, Eloise, Marina, Siena and Penelope.
Male names include Anthony, Colin, Simon and Benedict.
Daphne, the main character in Bridgerton played by Phoebe Dynevor, didn't even make the top 100 girls' names last year - but this could easily change in 2021.
Anthony, Colin & Simon were all been consistently popular names in the latter half of the 20th Century, but have fallen in popularity in recent years.
However, Bridgerton could lead to a resurgence in parents choosing these names for their sons.
