Most Popular Baby Names Of 2020 Revealed, Plus The Ones Set To Become Extinct





As the year draws to a close the most popular baby names of 2020 have been revealed - and it’s bad news for Karens. 



The experts at BabyCentre have unveiled the new top 100 names for boys and girls, using data from thousands of parents registering their choices on the website. 



The stats revealed there’s a new most popular girls' name for the first time in three years, as Sophia finally knocked Olivia off the top spot.



Olivia has only dropped into second place, followed by Amelia, with Lily and Isla making up the top five. 





The top choice stayed the same for boys - Muhammad - followed by Noah, Oliver, Arthur and Leo. 



As well as old favourites there are some brand new entries into the top 100 list, with Ellis, Albert, Mlio, Hudson, Jasper, Austin and Ayaan making an appearance for the boys. 



Ronnie - the name Mrs Hinch, aka Sophie Hinchliffe, chose for her baby son - also made the list. 



And for girls, monikers including Talia, Lyla, Niamh, Delilah, Anaya, Aisha, Madison, Zainab, Mabel, Margot and Eliana all featured for the first time. 



While 2020 has seen a wealth of new names grow in popularity, some have fallen out of favour. 



One in particular is Karen, possibly owing to a rise in memes using the name, depicting them in an unfavourable light. 



Jumanji actress, Karen Gillan, could be one of the last Karens standing as the name faces extinction with parents shunning the once-popular choice.



The name Karen saw its popularity peak in the 1960s, according to the ONS, but it was only given to 21 girls in 2018.



TV and current events have also been the inspiration behind some choices,  with the name Tiger soaring in popularity, thought to be due to the phenomenon that was Tiger King. 



TV shows like I May Destroy You, Normal People and Schitt’s Creek are also thought to be the inspiration behind a slew of names, including Arabella, Connell and Alexis. 



And the Black Lives Matter Movement is also thought to have influenced parents, with Rosa, Martin, Malcolm and Ella all surging in popularity.
