  • Some good names in these lists.


  • Nice classic names on both lists.


  • It looks as though some names are coming back into popularity again. e.g. Charlotte was very popular back about 14 or 15 years ago. I don’t think James has ever become rare


  • I like Jackson and Evie


  • I like Noah and Ava.


  • Love Oliver and Mia and Amelia. So cute


  • Charlie and Olivia l love the names for 2017.


  • I love that some of the classics are coming back, I love the names Oliver and Amelia.


  • Good to see that some of the older more normal names are making a comeback. I drop my daughter off at school sometimes and shudder at some of her class mate’s names.


  • I think Jack is the only name I would consider on either list.


  • I love more the girls than the boys names. :-) My favourite are Charlotte and Evie.


  • I love all these names. My favourite on the list is James for a boy and Evie for a girl.


  • We have an Oliver, almost 4 now :)
