How does it work?

The list of names came from a spot of detective work from our friends at Closer magazine.

They found out that the current average age a woman has a baby is 29.8 years. They then looked at the most popular girls' names for babies born in 1986-1987 (ie 29 year ago) and came up with this list. Simple as that!
