Choosing a name for your baby girl isn’t always easy.

Maybe you’ve know for years what you’d call your daughter, but for some of us, there are too many options to choose from.

Has your favourite baby name has been ruled out because your partner isn’t as in love with it as you are?

If you need some inspiration, look through the list of the top 100 boys’ names for 2008, compiled by Bounty.

In 2008, baby names for girls were topped by Olivia, which was also the 2006 favourite.

One of the highest climbers in the list of baby names for girls was Summer – the name of Dawn Swann’s baby in Albert Square – which leapt 28 places to hit position 16.

Celebrity influence also seemed to play its part. Ruby, chosen by singer Charlotte Church for her daughter, is the second most popular girl’s name. And Ava, the name of Myleene Klass’ baby, leapt 15 places to number 19.

Meanwhile, the name Amy fell in popularity, possibly echoing the declining personal fortunes of the singer Amy Winehouse. That said, it’s still sitting pretty in the top 20.

Is Lily at number 9 because we’re a bunch of Lily Allen fans? Lilly (with a double ‘L’) is also in the top 100. 

At number 62 is Keira – could the fame of actor Keira Knightley be responsible?

There’s really no way to know why some names make the top 100 year after year, and why others quickly drop down the list. Choosing a baby name is a very personal matter, and every one of us parents will have a different story as to why our little daughter is Rose, and not Ruby!
