Boys Name Lists
Each year in the UK the number of registered births are published for England and Wales. We have brought them all in to one place so you can look back over the past decade and see if you can find the name of someone you know and just how popular their birth name was.
The top names from 2016 will be coming along soon so keep checking back for more updates. While you wait, why not look for that special name, perhaps something a little more unique, or follow the trends with a modern name for your baby boy.
Don’t worry, you can quickly get inspiration by following the links to find alternative names with similar origins or that start with the same initials. And if you want to know more about any of the most popular names, you can jump straight to the page containing meaning as well.
