Oliver and Olivia have been crowned the two most popular baby names in Cambridgeshire this year.
It’s not the first year that either name has been a hit for babies born in the county. Each took third place in Cambridgeshire Registration Service’s name game last year and Oliver came out on top in 2011 and 2012.
2014’s chart-toppers, Jack and Amelia, dropped just two places in each case.
Other names holding onto their place in the top five are Thomas, Emily and Isla.
Newcomers to the boys’ top 20 are Charlie, Max, Daniel and Theo and the girls’ list continues to be increasingly traditional with Esme, Martha, and Ivy reappearing after an absence.

Some of the more unusual girls’ names that parents registered were Araminta, an eighteenth century hybrid of Arabella and Aminta and Mirren, a choice that potentially pays homage to the acclaimed actress Helen Mirren.
Stirling, Archer, and Edison – all historically family names – were among the less common names given to boys.
