Oliver Cromwell’s historical connections with Ely and Cambridgeshire are still alive and well as it’s been revealed that Oliver was the most popular name for a baby boy in the last 12 months.

With two royal babies on the horizon this year, traditional names are still popular in the region, with three current royal males referenced in the top five: Harry, George and William.

Meanwhile, Olivia was the most popular choice for a baby girl, followed by Amelia, Charlotte, Isla and Emily.
