It can be a very big decision to choose a name for your little one.

Do you follow the crowd and select a traditional moniker, or do you go against the grain and pick one that will stand out boldly from the rest on the classroom register?

But if your child is born this month and you feel like you might need some inspiration, perhaps you’d be interested to know the most popular October names.

The Office of National Statistics (ONS) have collected all the data from the last year of babies born in England and Wales and worked out which were the most popular boys and girls names for babies born in October 2019.

Either this can serve as a starting point for selecting a name for your Autumn baby, or perhaps a guide of names to avoid if you are planning on being unique.

But if none of these are to your fancy, some very old fashioned names are now coming back into vogue.

A study carried out by Preply.com used data again from the Office of National Statistics to examine the vintage baby names that are still popular today.

What they discovered is that nine out of the 20 most popular boys names back in 1908 were also in the top 30 names of 2018.

It seems that although some of these names suffered a huge dip in usage they are now back on trend in recent years.

For example the name Arthur, which is the name of Billie Faiers' son, was the fifth most popular name in 1908 and in 2018 it was seventh most popular name, with 3,644 children given the name that year.

However from 1924 onwards it had actually dropped off the top 100 list. Just shows that every trend comes back around eventually.
