These are officially the most popular baby names of 2018

Trying to find the perfect name for your little one can be tough.

After all, you want it to be something unique to your little one. But not so unique that they end up spelling it out for the rest of their lives.

But, also, you don't want it to be so common that they will end up sharing a name with half of their classmates when they reach school-age.

Like we said, tricky.

And with the end of 2018 coming up quickly, The Mirror have obtained BabyCentre's annual report of the year's most popular baby names - and it's chock-a-block with inspiration.

Olivia, once again, remained in the top spot for the year - followed by Sophia, Amelia and Lily. Meanwhile, Muhammad was the most popular pick for boys, followed by Oliver, Noah and Harry.
