According to Oxfordshire County Council’s Registration Service, the most popular baby names in Oxfordshire, England, in 2018 were Olivia and Oliver.
Here are Oxfordshire’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2018:
In the girls’ top 10, Evelyn, Emilia, and Sophie replace Poppy, Emily, and Evie.
In the boys’ top 10, William, Joshua, and Charlie replace Arthur, Alfie, and Muhammed.
The registrar also made note of the rise in hyphenated first names (for the second year in a row, actually).
In 2017, the top names in the county were Lily and Oliver.
P.S. Did you know that the Oxfordshire government offers naming ceremonies to residents? Pretty cool.
