British baby name lists always have some cool trends to consider as you're picking your baby's moniker. When we last checked into the tops of the British charts, they had some pretty cool trends going on:
- The third time's the charm. Brits get more than two chances to get the name right—giving a child two middle names is common.
- Character names are in vogue. British institutions like Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and Doctor Who have influenced the charts—the top name for boys is Harry (also the name of the young prince), and Amelia, the name of a recent companion on Doctor Who.
