Names are often cyclical, with certain monikers standing the test of time, and others making it up the ranks of popularity as trends change.
Pregnancy and parenthood company Bounty has predicted the names it sees blowing up over the decade to come.
A spokesman for Bounty said: ‘Having assessed over 300,000 names for the stand-out highest climbers over the last 12 months we can predict which exactly which name trends are set to take off.
‘This is because, outside of official birth registration lists (which are published 18 months behind) ours is the largest, most up-to-date baby names list in the UK – making it guaranteed to bring you the latest trends in baby names.’

Over the next 10 years, it seems we won’t have many Garys or Emmas, it’s all about ‘old-fashioned’ names with historical or literary connotations.
There are also some taken from pop culture, with Maeve and Otis both featuring in the hit Netflix show Sex Education.
Take a look at the top names, and expect your little ones to have classrooms full of Aurelias and Romeos.
