The world's most popular baby names for 2018 have been revealed
Did your name make the cut?
The Christmas season is a joyous time for parents as they get ready for the arrival of Santa and the inevitable destruction that follows as their household gets turned into a warzone with wrapping paper, scattered boxes and a plethora of toys that make more noise than World War II.
Ah kids, they're great!
As is tradition, the end of the year always brings about the inevitable 'end of lists' and as 2018 draws to a close, it appears that the classics are still thriving when it comes to the names of newborn babies.
Sadly, despite the best efforts of Theresa May, Donald Trump, and Fernando Nuno La-Fuente to dominate the headlines and pop-culture zeitgeist, it appears that the classic names are still very popular around the world.
However, A Star is Born fans will be particularly interested to see the name that tops the boys' list.
BabyCenter has surveyed 742,000 new parents to put together lists of the top 20 most popular boys and girls names this year. As BabyCenter is based in the US, it's hardly a surprise to see that there might not be as many Irish names on there as we'd like, but there are still plenty you'll recognise.
The most popular baby girl name for 2018 was Sophia, which has maintained the number one spot for nine years, and for the boys, Jackson came out on top.
