This name has been given quite a special honour

There’s no doubt that every child’s name is beautiful to their parents. There are thousands of stunning names out there that are extra special, but one name in particular has come out on top.

According to research from My 1st Years, scientists have revealed ‘beautiful’ names for baby girls and we’re in love with the monikers.

The team created the list by using linguistics such as ‘sound symbolism’ to find names that are the most beautiful.

The team at the University of Birmingham explained that these names make us feel “positive emotions” when we say them out loud.

One of the top names on the list was Ivy, which is one of our favourite baby names. The charming moniker also follows a rising baby name trend – three-lettered names.
