The most popular baby names in the world have been revealed.

Settling on a name for your little one can be tough.

After all, you want it to be something unique to your little one. But not so unique that they end up spelling it out for the rest of their lives.

But, also, you don’t want it to be so common that they will end up sharing a name with half of their classmates when they reach school-age.

Their favourite Marvel movies; TV shows; seasons; foods and hobbies have all been scoured in an effort to find that perfect moniker for their little one.

But if you’re looking for a choice that has some global appeal, Nameberry have compiled a list of the top names around the world.

The rankings are determined by, mostly, the number of times that each of the names featured in a Top 10 list. However, it does factor in other high rankings as well as the popularity of closely related names.
