There were some surprises on the list.

Whether you’re looking for a name for your soon-to-be new arrival, or simply have an interest in what names are the most popular, trending baby names are a pretty big deal.

The folks at Nameberry have put together a list of the most popular baby names over the last 12 months.

And while the year may be at an end, these names a seriously stunning – so we reckon they’ll be just as popular in the years to come.

While a lot of the names were on the more traditional side, or have appeared in the top 10 lists for a number of years, there were a few that were determined to shake things up.

Olivia ranked as the top pick for girls this year, for the second year running, while Charlotte (another favourite pick) dropped to fourth on the list.

And the list of the top boys’ names tell a similar story. Asher, Milo and Oliver have all been in the top 10 over the last few years.
