Most Popular Baby Names Of 2015 Revealed

The annual list of the most popular baby names of 2015 has just been revealed by BabyCentre, and it makes for some very interesting reading.

The Boys Top Ten names remain largely unchanged with Mohammed still the most popular name for boys, but there are big leaps in popularity in the rest of the top 100 names for Ryan, Aiden, Jackson, Eli, and Michael. Other names are falling rapidly down the chart, with Sam, Rory and Riley making the biggest drops.

In the Girls Top Ten there is a lot more movement with Olivia regaining the top spot from Sophia. Also it seems that the Game Of Thrones effect is still with us as Aria jumps up 44 places in the chart, and the big rise in popularity of Zoe has been attributed to the beauty vlogger Zoella!
