According to the experts at the Baby Centre who have compiled the list of the most popular names this year, it's Emma that has topped the charts.

And she's closely followed by similarly 'normal' names like Olivia, Sophia and Charlotte.

Here's the top ten in full:

  1. Emma
  1. Olivia
  1. Ava
  1. Isabella
  1. Sophia
  1. Mia
  1. Amelia
  1. Harper
  1. Charlotte
  1. Mila

But maybe it's too soon to measure the number of Stormis or Chicagos, the names chosen for their mini mes, by Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian respectively.

And with more high profile celebrity babies arriving in the next couple of months, with Khloe Kardashian and the Duchess of Cambridge both due to give birth in April, perhaps we'll see a change in the top ten.

And what about the boys we hear you cry? Well one of the Gallagher brothers will pleased at least, as Liam is topping the charts.

Here's the full top ten:

  1. Liam
  1. Noah
  1. Logan
  1. Oliver
  1. Mason
  1. Lucas
  1. Ethan
  1. Elijah
  1. Aidan
  1. James
