Boris proves to be popular with parents
SINCE the European Union referendum in June, the number of children being named Boris have increased by 55%, according to recent figures.
UK parenting club Bounty has published its list of the most popular baby names of 2016 and has found that the MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip has been quite the popular figure with parents.
Newborn babies named Boris increased by a 55%, while the name Cameron has dropped by 33% since Prime Minister David Cameron stepped down earlier this year.
The Bounty report also found royal names were still hugely popular, including Charlotte, which soared by 53% after the birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s daughter, making it the 16 most popular baby name for girls in this country. Son George has the fifth most popular boy’s name of 2016.
Lisa Penney from Bounty said: “Whilst there are some surprising results in our 2016 data, the trend we’ve seen over the last few years have continued.”
