Here's what we'll all be naming our babies in 2018

Scooch over babies named Olivia because your baby name reign could be coming to an end, and make way for Emma and Finn (the name of Aussie model Miranda Kerr's son) to take out the crown.

While Emma, Oliver and William were revealed as being some of the most popular names of 2017, baby naming experts have revealed it's all set to change for 2018.

The helpful people at Babygaga have pored over records from the last few years to predict which monikers will be the most popular next year.

It’s based on emerging baby name trends, such as a growing love of the moniker Corbyn, and a preference for naming your baby after the TV programme du jour – welcome to the world baby Theon.

The list provides a useful guide for parents-to-be on what names are expected to be big on nursery registers in a few years time, while also giving an indication about the monikers they might want to avoid if they’re keen on giving the newborn a name that’s totally unique.

From the comeback of traditional names Stella and Hazel for girls, to the perennially popular Dylan and Jack here are the names officials will likely be stamping on birth certificates in 2018 over and over again.
