The most popular baby names in North Hertfordshire during 2013 have been revealed.

Top five baby names for girls

2. Lily

3. Emily

Isla came out on top for girls and Oliver was number one for boys of those registered at Stevenage Registry Office, which covers the town and the whole of North Hertfordshire.

After two consecutive years as the favourite name for girls, Lily has dropped down to second, while Harry remains in that position for the second year running.

“It’s always interesting to see what names are chosen,” said Hertfordshire county councillor Richard Thake, the cabinet member for the county’s registration service.

“Whatever choice parents make, they can celebrate the birth and naming of their child at a Civil Naming Ceremony organised by Hertfordshire’s Registration Service.
