Nov 25th, 2008 at 17:31 GMT
I was goin through the entire royal family and only William pops up! LOL! I didn't even try Harry because I didn't think anyone still named thier kids that. And "Charles" didn't work, but "Charlie" does? Okay. And no Michael? Shocking.

They are the most popular names for BABIES born in 2007.
Dec 14th, 2008 at 11:53 GMT
The only one I was certain of is Jack... because that's my name and the name's been the number 1 boy's name for 15 years... I am 15 years old :D i don't know any alfie's, grace's or ruby's :s
Jan 24th, 2009 at 16:55 GMT
These names are a lot better than the American ones.
Apr 6th, 2009 at 03:34 GMT
I'm American, but I will say that your list tops ours, with the exception of Ruby and Alfie. I'm not big on Oliver either, but perhaps its popularity goes back to Cromwell (it's a somewhat rare name in the states).

no-one has these names at my school (with the execption of chloe and emily for girls and jack tom and dan for boys)
May 20th, 2009 at 18:27 GMT
Well of course you don't know many people with these names...since the people with these names are two years old..

i think the American one is better. Harry, Alfie, and Oliver, and Ruby and Grace? When is this 1907?
Jul 30th, 2009 at 01:03 GMT
you dont know them cos its only becoming popular now dummys
Aug 2nd, 2009 at 04:31 GMT
I only got 8 out of 20, probably because I am not British.
Aug 7th, 2009 at 17:21 GMT
the quiz says the uk but only incorporates england and wales so it is only 3/4 of britain!
Aug 10th, 2009 at 16:38 GMT
olive juice btw i work in a nursery with 2 year olds and non of them have these names ethier!
Nov 3rd, 2009 at 18:59 GMT
amelia? alfie? i know no one called that
Nov 7th, 2009 at 18:48 GMT
Actually ConorONeill it should be half the UK, as UK is Scotland, England, Wales and N. Ireland.

Got 12 but emelia should be allowed for amelia - in my year there's three spelt with an 'e' and none with an 'a'.

Moldemort: "Got 12 but emelia should be allowed for amelia - in my year there's three spelt with an 'e' and none with an 'a'."
I know what you mean. My friend spells name is the same as mine but for some strange reason it's spelt with a "B" instead of an "H" - what's that about, eh?
Dec 18th, 2009 at 09:35 GMT
@HarryP: there is a big difference - Amelia and Emelia are pronounced the same - it's like John and Jon or Rhys, Reiss and Reece
Jan 5th, 2010 at 03:52 GMT
I got a lot more then i should of. My thinking was UK = Harry Potter = Harry, Daniel, Lily, Tom, and some others. I was upset there was no Rupert, but I enjoyed the quiz.
Jan 27th, 2010 at 19:05 GMT
These may seem more normal than the American names, but there could still be a Nevaeh or Aaliyah lurking somewhere between 11 and 100.
Feb 27th, 2010 at 05:22 GMT
I have trouble believing that there are more parents who named sons Charlie as the real name than there are parents who named son Charles and used Charlie as a nickname. And there's just no excuse for "Alfie." Of course, we have a bunch of little girls named Madison toddling around.

Can I point out to Shani3 that Harry IS a royal name - he's our Prince William's younger brother. As to all the 'old fashioned' names like Alfie and Ruby - they're very 'big' in the UK just now.
Apr 2nd, 2010 at 09:53 GMT
i got em all :] that was quite shocking though lol
Aug 10th, 2010 at 00:41 GMT
the only alfie i know is my mate's dog
Oct 14th, 2010 at 22:23 GMT
If the various spellings of Mohammed were combined, it might make the list.
Jan 16th, 2011 at 19:05 GMT
@ TheyKilledKenny: Also, Alfie Enoch plays Dean Thomas, so that's another Harry Potter related name. Interesting that so many people would name their child Harry, with the books so popular. I love Harry Potter, but I would feel strange naming my child Harry. Although I guess it's because its a Royal name, too.
Mar 19th, 2011 at 22:55 GMT
much better than the american list! i like all the names on here, although i probably wouldn't name my child them as they are a little boring. and as for not knowing any people called these names - that's probably because they're all 3 years old! however, it's only really the girls names that change the boys stay quite a lot the same
Dec 13th, 2011 at 14:25 GMT
I'm in the UK and I do know children (a lot of them born before 2007) with all of these names. Along with multiple Amys and Eleanors! :o)
Dec 16th, 2011 at 00:06 GMT
I am an instrumental teacher and there are millions of Jacks, Chloes, Rubys, Harrys, Williams, Charlies, Jessicas and Olivias around. There are a lot of Sophies as well but those tend to be teenagers.
Jan 28th, 2012 at 00:07 GMT
of course harry potter!
Jan 29th, 2012 at 23:34 GMT
Ruby? Chloe? I only know cats that have those names...
Mar 26th, 2012 at 10:52 GMT
These are names for babies in 2007?? not 1950, of course you don't know people called the names if they are all 3 years old?!
Apr 3rd, 2012 at 11:15 GMT
Pretty awful or so so dull names in there. Really hate Oliver, Olivia, Lily, Thomas, Emily and Jessica.
Apr 16th, 2012 at 03:50 GMT
Mohammed was my first guess. Pretty shocked not to see it there
Apr 16th, 2012 at 22:49 GMT
"What's it all about Alfie?" Good grief, Michael Caine was actually young when that movie came out. Hadn't heard the name since. (Oh, except for the 2004 Jude Law remake- Hmm, I guess old names do resurface!)
Jul 11th, 2012 at 20:28 GMT
Awkward when your own name is the least guessed...
Jul 22nd, 2012 at 09:05 GMT
I'm still waiting for the 'Baby names of Kyrgyzstan' quiz.
Mar 31st, 2013 at 17:06 GMT
These names are seriously better than the u.s. We tend to name our kid's nicer names than: Nevaeh, Mackensie, Mckenna, Blue , Starr. Oh, there are hindreds of stupid baby names. But as I'm saying this is MY OPINION.
