Baby Names - The Best And The Worst 2012

Traditional names dominate top twenty of 2012

Published on December 19th 2012.


Baby Names - The Best And The Worst 2012

STATISTICS gathered by a baby-naming website have found that Ethan and Eva are the top two names for new-borns in 2012 in a list dominated by old-fashioned and traditional names.

BabyNames.co.uk found that boys' names such as Oliver, Charlie and Jack continued to dominate parental choices throughout the year, as did the ever-popular Amelia, Alice and Ella for girls.

The most significant event in 2013 that will be sure to influence baby naming will be the naming of William and Kate's royal child, which will be certain to spark a rush at registry offices in the second half of the year.

The most popular names of 2012 include those of a biblical origin such as Ethan, Jacob and Noah, while the bottom end of the list sees the recent rush for unusual names finally coming to an end, with the likes of Gracie-Mai, Charlee, Truman and Trent falling out of fashion.

Predictably and somewhat depressingly, the most significant event in 2013 to influence baby naming will be the naming of William and Kate's royal child.
