Kate to top baby name charts for girls
The name Kate is expected to dominate baby name lists in 2011
With the highly anticipated wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton next year, research suggests the future Queen’s name could top the books for newborn baby girls.
History suggest the first name of a royal bride can become twice as popular in the year of her wedding, which was the case with Princess Diana when she married Prince Charles in 1981.
Dan Jones of Ancestry.co.uk says: ‘Birth, marriage and death records allow the unique observation of fascinating social trends, including this royal naming pattern.’
Analysis of about 230million birth and marriage records from 1837 to 2005 has revealed the royal naming trend. When the Queen married Prince Philip in 1947, 124 more baby girls were named Elizabeth than the previous year.
Furthermore, when Prince Albert married Queen Victoria in 1840, the number of baby girls given her name increased by 35%.
Royal birth have also influenced the baby naming charts with William and Harry rising in popularity in the 1990’s after the two princes were born.
