We begin with Margaret, which was popular in both the UK and UK, and it was a top name of choice in the 1930s and 1940s.

However, when the 1950s hit the most popular women's name changed to Susan, which stayed in top spot for the 1960s too.

As we moved into the 1970s and 90s, it was time a new name to take centerstage – Sarah!

After this, Rebecca began the number one name for baby girls throughout the 1990s and this then changed to Chloe for the 2000s.

As we head towards modern day, it's Olivia that has been holding down top spot since the 2010s.

It's still a hit today and often pops up as the most popular name in recent years.
