Most popular baby names in Peterborough in 2018 revealed
The most popular names for babies born in 2018 in Peterborough have been announced - and there is not much change at the top.
For the 11th year in a row, Mohammed (and all spelling variations) remains the most popular name for boys in the city.
For girls, last year’s second placed name, Olivia, topped the charts in 2018, with Amelia - top in 2017 - slipping to third.
The statistics, released by the Peterborough Register Office, show traditional names are still firm favourites with Peterborough families.
While there was a royal baby born in 2017, with Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge welcoming Prince Louis to their family in April, Peterborough families did not follow their lead - with Louis not appearing in the top 20.
However, the Duchess’s sister, Pippa Matthews (nee Middleton) and her husband James Matthews welcomed their first son Arthur - and his name cracked the top 10 in the city.
