Top 2010 baby names from bounty

eri isnt popular but thats not why we chose it.


Our records have found that Katie and Amy have fallen out of the top 20 first names for girls - with Maisie and Isabella storming up the charts to replace them.

Perhaps it was only a matter of time before the monikers of troubled stars, Katie Price and Amy Winehouse were replaced by the prettier and less infamous names. The highest climber in our list of most popular girls names in the UK is Bella, due in no small part to the lead character in Twilight, played by actress Kristen Stewart.
Olivia is still top after 3 years after deposing Grace in 2008 and Sophie is still second. Lily is now third, up from 8th place, with Emily and Ruby completing the top five.

In the boys list Jack has finally been bumped off top spot by Oliver after 16 years in first place but very little of the rest of the top ten has changed since last year. Jack is now second while Harry, Charlie and Alfie, all non-movers, make up the top five.

Ollie emerged as the biggest climber - up 56 places to number 53 - while Zachary, perhaps inspired by High School Musical's Zac Efron, has also become more common.

Other names we will be hearing more regularly include Logan, which climbed seven places to 17th and Oscar, which moved up four to 22nd.

Callum and Liam seem to have had their day - they were the biggest fallers in the top 30, seven and nine places respectively.

Brand new entries into our top 100 lists this year are Esme, Courtney, Jude, Elliot and Stanley.
