Top baby names in Hartlepool (England), 2007

These were the most popular baby names in the English town of Hartlepool in 2007:

Boy Names

  1. Jack (which also ranked 1st nationally)
  2. Alfie (10th)
  3. Lewis (16th)
  4. Ethan (15th)
  5. Kyle (53rd)

Girl Names

  1. Millie (which ranked 21st nationally)
  2. Emily (4th)
  3. Sophie (6th)
  4. Ellie (13th)
  5. Chloe (7th)

It seems that parents in Hartlepool have a special affinity for the names Kyle and Millie.

The proportionally high usage of Kyle might be due to media exposure: Kyle Fisher, a 2-year-old from Hartlepool, died under suspicious circumstances in mid-2004 and his name has been popping up in the local news ever since.
