MOST POPULAR BABY NAMES FOR CHRISTMAS 2016

T’is the season to be jolly but for some people Christmas will not be a silent night! It is only fitting then that Noah and Ava (derived from Eve) top the list of names for babies due this coming festive season, as compiled by one of the world’s favourite pregnancy apps, Pregnancy+.

A total of nine Bible-inspired boy names and five girl names have made it into the Top 30 names for festive babies due between 22nd December 2016 and 3rd January 2017. For boys, Jacob sits at number 5 followed by Ethan (no.11), Lucas (no.14), Isaac (no.16), Caleb (no.21), Elijah (no.24), and Joshua (no.25).

For girls, the Top 30 contains a number of names derived from the biblical name Eve. In addition to Ava on number 1, the Top 30 includes Evie (no.5) and Eva (no.16). Other Bible-inspired names include Mia, which is short for Miriam, on number 8; and Grace, generally associated with the Christian faith, on number 10.
