Arthur and Sienna were the most popular names among the 897 babies born in 2021... but which others made the top 10?
Isla and Olivia nabbed the second and third spot for girls, while Oliver and Noah completed the top three for boys, according to new data released by the Superintendent Registrar.
While Isabella took the top spot in 2020, it didn’t make the top 10 in 2021. However Lucas fell to the sixth place.
Neither Sienna (1) nor Arthur (1) had made the top 10 last year.
Since 2016, the name, which was favoured by Princess Beatrice who named her first daughter Sienna Elizabeth, has only featured twice in the top 10. It previously topped the poll in 2018, having not featured among the favourites for 2017.
