23 December 2020

It’s something you live with your entire life so getting a name right is important.

This year at Redland Hospital several baby names proved more popular than any others with Noah and Oliver coming equal first place for boys and Amelia the most popular for girls.

With more than 1700 babies born at Redland Hospital every year, classic “old” names and biblical names are still a winner with many parents and this year was no exception with Jack ranked third followed by Elijah.

This was not quite the case with girls’ names Amelia, Harper and Isla were the most popular this year.
