Fashionable Baby Names

I always think you can have a rough guess at when someone was born by their name, so there's (probably) a wealth of fifty-something years olds named after the 1966 World Cup winning squad, a few people in their mid-thirties called Kylie, Jason, Scott and Charlene and I'm willing to bet that "Bridgerton" is responsible for the names of a few lockdown babies.

But, apparently names go in a hundred year cycle, which means that there are some awesome retro ones about to make a comeback. Find My Past has conducted some research and they reckon these names are the top 10 boys and girls names about to have a surge in popularity.
