英国最受欢迎的婴儿名字揭晓

Aida and Arthur might be gaining popularity, but they haven't managed to knock Olivia and Oliver off the top spot yet - with 4,598 girls called Olivia and 5,390 boys named Oliver born in England and Wales last year.

尽管阿依达(Aida)和亚瑟(Arthur)可能越来越受欢迎,但它们还没能把奥利维亚(Olivia)和奥利弗(Oliver)挤下榜首。去年,有 4598个被取名为奥利维亚的女孩和5390个被取名为奥利弗的男孩在英格兰和威尔士出生。

Coming in second for the girls was Amelia, and George for the boys. Unsurprisingly, the name Alexa halved in a year, possibly due to potential confusion with Amazon's smart speaker.

排名第二的女孩名是阿米莉亚(Amelia),男孩名是乔治(George)。不出所料,女孩名亚莉克莎(Alexa)的使用量在一年内减半,这可能是因为它与亚马逊智能音箱的语音助手同名,从而可能会发生混淆。

Meanwhile, in Scotland, Olivia grabbed the top spot again for the girls, with Jack for the boys. And it was a tie between Noah and James in Northern Ireland along with Grace for a girl.

与此同时,在苏格兰,奥利维亚(Olivia)再次夺得女孩名排行榜冠军,杰克(Jack)排男孩名首位。男孩名诺亚(Noah)和詹姆斯(James)在北爱尔兰打成平手,格蕾丝(Grace)是北爱尔兰最受欢迎的女孩名。
