Everyone loves to give their child a unique name, whether it’s an unusual moniker or it’s accompanied by a special story, but the ‘most popular’ lists never fail to inspire.


This week, the most popular US baby names have been revealed – and, we have to say, there are some beautiful additions to inspire any mum-to-be.


Few will be surprised to hear that ‘Emma’ and ‘Noah’ came out on top for the girls and boys, respectively; both names have proven to be incredibly popular in countries all over the world in recent years.



Celebrity influence is still very strong among new mothers, too, with the likes of ‘Charlotte’ (Kate Middleton and Prince William), ‘Harper’ (Victoria and David Beckham) and ‘Mason’ (Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick) all included in the lists.
