For girls, the name Luna tops the list for the very first time, after being ranked fourth last year, knocking last year’s number one, Isla, into fifth place.
Making up the top three are Aurora and Maeve, which have come back into use after being popular a few generations ago.
Next is Olivia – a consistently popular name – and in sixth place is Ava, followed by Royally-approved Charlotte, which was the fifth most popular last year.
Ophelia is in seventh place, followed by Eloise and Eleanor.
Most popular girls' names of 2020
Out of the top ten three are new entries; Ava, Eloise and Eleanor.
Though it seems global events are influencing the names, with Cora, which was ranked seventh last year, not making an appearance in the top ten.
Nameberry, who compiled the list, noted: “Cora, which we might have predicted would go all the way to the top of the list, may have been knocked out of contention by its similarity to corona.”
For boys, the most popular name is Asher, followed by Milo, which were third and second overall last year.
In third place is Oliver, another traditional choice, with Levi and Silas making up the top five.

Next are more traditional names, with Atticus and Theodore coming in sixth and seventh place.
In eighth place is Jasper, followed by Leo and finishing the top ten is Arlo.
This name, along with Leo and Levi, are described as “dramatic” new entrants.
Though it seems the name Archie has seen its popularity fade, falling from first place last year to not even making the top ten this year so far.
Nameberry said: “Archie has fallen off the Top 10, though it probably ranked that high artificially, thanks to the royal baby.
“The other boys’ name that’s slipped is Jack.”
