Over the past year (and a bit), we’ve seen plenty of new baby name trends come to the fore.

And while we’re sure there’ll be plenty of little of Daenerys Targaryens running around the playground in a few years time, for now, it seems the mums on our forum are keeping it fairly classic when it comes to their children’s monikers.

For girls, Matilda and Mia reign supreme, and many more of our top 80 girls’ names also throwback to decades gone by.

But we’re also seeing a rise in short, quirky modern names: Lyra, Skye, Nala, Seren and Elia being just a few…

As for the gents, well, Charlie rose to the top of the crop. Either a certain popstar Styles or ginger-haired Prince is making Harry cool again, too – because it came 2nd in our top boys’ names by a mile, neck-in-neck with Theo.

It also seems like short ‘A’ names and ‘K’ names, like Arlo and Kane, are making waves for boys, as well.

Without further ado, here are MadeForMums’ top 181 baby names this year…
