Sheffield bucks baby name trends

Have your say

BABY names proving popular in Sheffield are bucking national trends.

Sheffield parents are choosing the girls’ names Grace and Sophia, and boys’ names Isaac, Samuel and George, more than those in any other area of the UK according to a new report.

The poll from website listed the top 100 baby names chosen for the 430,000 babies who were born in 2012.

Nationally, Amelia and Harry were in the number one positions.

And the names tipped to be favourites for all parents next year included monikers such as Elsie, Frankie, and Arthur.

They are among more traditional names which have risen up the baby name ranks this year.
