Is it teething time for your little one?


We can’t quite believe we’re halfway through 2018 already. Time may be flying by, but now that July is here, it brings the most popular baby names of the year so far.


The top 20 baby names for both boys and girls have been revealed and we are crazy about them.


Plenty of traditional and elegant names have made the top 20 in boys and girls names, with Olivia topping the girl's list and Muhammad topping the boy's list.



The team over at Baby Centre revealed that the royal family have had a major impact on baby name trends.


Charlotte, Harry and George featured in the top 20. The classic regal names have been growing in popularity, especially with two huge royal family occasions this year- the birth of Prince Louis and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.




Traditional names like Charlie, Henry and Arthur also made an appearance on the list.


Louis has yet to feature on the list, but the young prince’s name might make an appearance later in the year.
