Shortened versions of traditional boys’ names featured in half of the top 10 boys’ names chosen by mothers aged under 25 years compared with just one name chosen by mothers aged 35 years and over.

David Corps, Vital Statistics Outputs Branch, Office for National Statistics, said: “Oliver and Olivia continued their reign as the top boys’ and girls’ names in 2019, but analysis shows choices in baby names can differ depending on the mother’s age.

"We found younger mothers opted for more modern girls’ names like Harper, which has seen a rise since the Beckhams named their daughter so in 2011, and shortened boys’ names like Freddie. In contrast, older mothers chose more traditional names such as Jack and Charlotte.

“Popular culture continues to influence the baby names landscape. Following Dua Lipa’s first UK number one single in 2017, the number of girls named Dua has doubled from 63 to 126 in 2019.”
