We can often tell by a name the era someone was born in. Some names come into fashion and then loose popularity whilst others seem timeless.
Today, when seeking inspiration, parents often look at current celebrities or characters from popular programmes, where once they may have considered family names, those of film stars or prominent public figures.
Some of the names which are trending at the moment for girls are Ariana which has seen a 300% rise in the last 10 years or Arya and Elsa.
Boys names too have seen some interesting rises in popularity with names such as Jesse, Dexter and Dustin moving up the ratings.
Choosing a name can be quite daunting and when deciding my own children's names we made a short list but put off the final decision for a few days after their birth to see which name seemed to fit them best.
