Taylor Swift is probably my best friend. I drink too much coffee, but so do you... Weird, Wild & Free.

While most of us don’t realise how much certain things in the world have an influence on us… by these names they definitely do.

It’s hard to believe we are literally living in September 2016… we aren’t too sure when April happened but here we are. Because the year is coming to a close this means that we have now discovered that a whole lot of random baby names have joined the most popular baby names list.


Anything from film and TV to celebs to events has all helped this year's list come together.  The babes over at Babycentre have been working all year to keep track of the names that have become popular since January.

It turns out that it’s not just us watching Netflix… everyone is, 'Sons of Anarchy' had quite the influence with names such as Harley, Abel, Jax and Jackson all rising up the list as well as 'Peaky Blinders' characters Alfie, Cillian and Polly.

'Harry Potter' fans will be happy with this one; Harry, Daniel, Hermione and Emma are also more popular this year than they were in 2015.  


'Star Wars' fans may have also had some kids this year, with Leia, Kylo, Lucas and Anakin all predicted to keep on rising with popularly this year.

Believe it or not but Kendall, Kim and Kylie also rose pretty high up the chart…

Parents have also used the universe as inspiration, naming their kids Aurora, Luna, Phoenix, Orion, Nova and even Heaven. Other names such as Kasper, Danny, Robert and Christian also took higher leap up the list.

To be honest naming a chid seems really hard.
