Okay this is what you have been waiting for – the top ten baby names for Scotland in 2018.
For many there is no change from last year – yes it’s that exciting.
This is based on statistics for 24,532 boys’ births being registered. Although Jack is the most popular it accounts for 1.6% of a chosen name for boys.
23,253 girls’ births were registered with 1.8% choosing Olivia for a first name.
Parents choose a wider range of names to call their bairns now but the ‘second/middle’ name tends to be a more traditional one.
There is also an increasing variation in spelling and some regional differences.
