Nick Stripe, of the Office for National Statistics , said: “Although Oliver and Olivia remained the most popular baby names in 2017, some fascinating changes took place beneath them.

“Leo entered the boys’ top 10 for the first time, whilst Hunter rocketed into the top 100, also for the first time, reaching number 78.

“Sarah, the most popular name for baby girls throughout much of the 1970s and 1980s, dropped out of the top 100 for the first time since our records began in 1904.

“Brand new entries into the top 100 for girls include the names Aurora and Hallie.”

There were two new entries into the top 100 most popular boys’ names in 2017 for England and Wales: Hunter and Ralph, which replaced Aaron and Jasper from the top 100 in 2016.

This is the first time Hunter has been in the top 100 boys’ names, Ralph last appeared in the top 100 in 1944.

There were six new entries in the top 100 most popular girls’ names in 2017 in England and Wales: Aurora, Orla, Edith, Bonnie, Lyla and Hallie.

These replaced Lexi, Zoe, Maddison, Sarah, Felicity and Lydia.
