Most popular baby names for kids born in February revealed – including Leo, Isla and Freya

NOT trying to stress you out – but choosing a name for your new baby is one of the biggest decisions you'll make as a parent.

And it usually comes before you've even had much of a chance to get some practice in.

Well if you're really struggling for inspiration and don't want your child to share their name with five other kids in their class, then we're here to help.

The Office of National Statistics reveals the UK's most popular baby names every year – but did you know they also break down the data into months?

And we're warning you now – you can easily lose a few hours browsing through their old records.

In 2019, Oliver and Olivia were the two overall favourite monikers for baby boys and girls – and they topped the month of February too.

Most popular February baby names revealed:


  1. Oliver
  2. George
  3. Noah

The traditional names George, Harry, Noah and Arthur also made up the top ten list of popular boy names for February.
