A customer asked us what the most popular names were in the UK, and as a name labels manufacturer we should of course know this. To be honest we could only guess, but with a bit of filtering and sorting on our customer database we were able to create a top 20 name list. The database is absolutely huge, based on 6 years of name labels sales.
The top 3 names for boys were: Jack, James and Matthew.
The top 3 names for girls were: Emily, Jessica and Charlotte.
Not surprisingly the top surname was......Smith, then Jones, then Brown.
You can see the full top 20 lists on our site:

Maybe we should publish some of the more unusual names to help parents name their babies.
