New research suggests that these baby names might only be around for two more generations before becoming 'extinct'.

The study has been done by the Popular Baby Name website which is run by the Government of New South Wales, they examined the names of children born in the since 1900. The research was then verified by the Essential Baby Forum's own researchers.

Using different data they have worked out that, some names definitely won’t be around to see our grand kids name their own babies.

If that doesn’t really makes sense to you…don’t worry it doesn’t really to us either… but what we are trying to say is if your name is Sarah, Jennifer, Matt or Adam you could be the last.

In just a few decades these names could be saying goodbye to us all.
