Popular Baby Names for 2012

Well, with all fury around the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy, we thought it would be fun to look at popular baby names in the U.K for 2012.

For boys, the top five names according to the are:


Harry knocked off Oliver for the top spot.

For girls, the top five names according to the same source are:


The name Harry originates from Old German and means ‘home ruler’ appears to be only popular in the U.K. In the United States, Jacob is the number one name for boys according to the Social Security Office and in Canada, William is in the top spot according to Today’s Parents.

 The name Amelia comes from Latin and Old German and means industrious. In the United States, the highest name is Sophie, which comes from the Greek origin meaning wisdom. In Canada, the top name was Maya.

Now with all this information, you would think the London bookmakers would bet that one of the names the new royal baby would have would be in the top 5. Nope, this is not the case. According to the Associate Press, bookmakers are giving 2:1 odds that Duke and Duchess of Cambride will be giving birth to a baby girl,  and her name will be Alexandra.
