As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge name their newborn boy, Oxford County Council have revealed that regal names are the most popular among parents.
Figures from Oxford's Registration Service show that past and present names of the royal family are commonly selected.
Three of the top ten popular boys' names in the last six months have a royal connection.
James, the name of two kings of England, was given to 39 boys in the timeframe making it the sixth most popular.
Harry, the brother of the Duke of Cambridge, is in seventh place has been chosen 38 times.
The Duke's first name, William, came in at joint-ninth place with 36 babies locally receiving the name.
Oxfordshire parents like to choose traditional names for their children and this may explain why regal names are so popular in the county. Sometimes names become popular because a famous couple has given their child a specific name, so there may be many boys locally soon with the name George, which William and Kate chose for their baby."
