The year 2020 hasn't exactly been the easiest for expectant mums and new parents due to being stuck at home, but one thing no doubt put a smile on their faces.
Choosing a name for your newborn child is one of the happiest moments for any parents, and now the most searched baby names of 2020 have been revealed.
Website Nameberry has shared the most popular choices over the past 12 months, which means these names will probably be very popular in 2021.
Announcing the list, the site said: "These are the names that got the most views on our site this year.
"They’re the ones on name-savvy parents’ (or future parents’) minds, so they’re a pretty good measure of what will be hot in the year ahead."
In first place for baby girls is Luna – which finally knocks Olivia off of the top spot.
And second place is Maeve, which is the name of one of the main characters in the hit Netflix series Sex Education.

That's followed by Aurora, and in fourth place is Isla while the pretty name Ava made it in at fifth place.
At number six is Eleanor, and then comes Ophelia – which Millie Radford chose for her daughter born earlier this year.
Completing the top 10 is Olivia, followed by Aurelia and then Eloise.
Nameberry also revealed which girls’ names entered the top 100 for the first time – or made a return.
It seems names with an "el" sound had soared in popularity, with Eliana, Ella, Ellie all making a comeback.
However, when it comes to baby boys, the top choice remained the same for the second year in a row with the choice of Milo.
While two more "O" sounding names made the list in the form of Leo and Arlo.
The rest of the top five was made up by Atticus, Asher, Silas and new entry Leo.
There was also some rather unusual names that made the list, such as Caspian, Lucifer and Orion.
Royal boys' names also made the top 100, with Louis ranked 52nd place, Archie in 55th, while William was 63rd.
