Jack and Harry have been pipped to the post, as have Sophie and Emily.
For the second year running, Oliver and Olivia have proved themselves
the most popular baby names in England and Wales. According to figures
published by the Office for National Statistics, 8,427 boys were named Oliver
in 2010, while Olivia was bestowed on 5,279 girls.

The statistics also show that half the names on the list were as popular last

top 10 names for boys in 2000 and 2010; Olivia, Chloe, Emily, Sophie and Jessica
all feature in both lists for girls.

and 2010, rising 16 places to reach 51. Noah also proved popular, climbing

12 places to number 56.
Aidan was the boys' name that suffered the biggest slump in popularity,
slipping 13 places to 91.

Lacey, which rose 31 places between 2009 and 2010 to 36, was the highest
climber within the top 100 names for girls, followed by Florence, which rose 26
places to number 54. Esme also increased in popularity, rising 21 places to 74, while Maisie climbed 20 places to number 14. Libby was the girls' name that most
declined in popularity, sliding 20 places down to 98.

The figures also show which names are most popular in each region.
Jack overtook Oliver in the north-east as the most popular boys' name, while Sophie
and Lily were the most popular girls' names in the east and south-west respectively.
