If you’re due a new baby sometime soon I’m pretty sure there will be many things running through your mind, not least the all important task of naming your new love.

Naming your baby is one of the most important jobs you’ll have as a new parent, the name you choose will most likely be with them for life and that can be a pretty overwhelming thought. However, choosing names can be so much fun, and if you’re anything like me, you were probably thinking about all the possibilites while the lines were still developing on your test… Believe me when I say that my list was long, very, very loooong! :)

According to the National Records of Scotland, Jack was the top name for baby boys in 2018, holding the top spot for the eleventh consecutive year, while Olivia was the first choice for girls for the third year running.

How does your list compare to the most popular choices from last year? Only one of my three childrens names features on the list, Sophie at number four. The other two, Daniel and Ana, haven’t made the cut!

So, good luck on making your decisions and remember to enjoy the process because naming your baby is fun, fun, fun!

Happy list making!

Much love,
