Across the country, new names to enter the top 100 girls name list were Lara, Beatrice and Sarah, while Olive moved up 25 spaces to 74th place.

James Tucker, Head of Health and Life Events Analysis at the Office for National Statistics, said: “Olivia remained the most popular girls name in 2021, having held the top spot since 2016.

"Girls' names such as Glenda and Kerry, that were more common before, are also becoming endangered and we have seen less than five girls being named each year since 2018.”
