“While the most popular first names have been broadly consistent in the past few years, the number of people using the top names has fallen dramatically compared with a few decades ago,” says Attorney General Mark Speakman.

Oliver was given to 568 boys last year – a lot less than the number of boys named Matthew in 1990, which was the top name for that year.

What’s more, 449 babies were called Charlotte in 2019 – 1,647 Jessicas were named in 1990, again this was the most popular name of that year.
