Most Popular Baby Names 2009 - UK

Choosing a baby name is a daunting prospect and one that parents agonise over for many, many hours.

If you are aren't sure how to go about selecting a name for your baby please start with my guide to choosing a baby name

Baby naming books are a great place to start looking for a name. I bought several when naming my own children and was surprised to find just how different the suggestions between different books can be. I found that many of them have a particular "style" and may either be fairly conservative or more geared to looking for a very unique name.

Whatever your preference it can be helpful to see what other parents have chosen in recent times, either to avoid the next "Sharon and Tracy" or to see what trends in baby naming are.

The following lists show the most recent lists of baby names as recorded in the UK. As is evident from the tables below Jack and Olivia are currently the most popular baby names in the UK.

Baby Names can cause people a lot of stress and worry. The important thing to remember is that this is supposed to be a fun process and part of the joy of welcoming a new person into your life.
