Win­ners of name game

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

THE most pop­u­lar baby names in Hyn­d­burn last year were Muhammad for boys and Amelia for girls, ac­cord­ing to the Of­fice of Na­tional Sta­tis­tics.

A to­tal of 1,065 ba­bies were born in the bor­ough in 2017, in­clud­ing 536 boys and 529 girls.

Par­ents in Hyn­d­burn didn’t fol­low the na­tional baby-nam­ing trend for boys, with Oliver fail­ing to make the top spot.

Olivia, the na­tion’s favourite name for girls, also didn’t top the charts for Hyn­d­burn par­ents last year.
