Choosing a name for your newborn baby can be one of the most exciting aspects of the parenting journey, but the process can also be one of the most stressful and daunting parts of welcoming your bub into the world—and that doesn’t even include coming to an agreement with your partner. 

Whether you look to a name steeped in family history, those with both traditional and quirky backgrounds, or ask the countless baby naming apps for advice, there are plenty of ways to come up with the perfect moniker for your baby. 

Of those, is the yearly list of the most popular baby names in a specific location—which, more often than not, are usually influences by pop culture and the royal family. Since 2017, the name Charlotte has regularly appeared on the list of most popular names for young girls, while Oliver, William, and Jack regularly find themselves in the lineup.
