Siân Bradford, Vital Statistics Outputs Branch, Office for National Statistics said: “Popular culture continues to provide inspiration for baby names, whether it’s characters in our favourite show or trending celebrities.

“Maeve and Otis, characters from the popular programme ‘Sex Education’, have seen a surge in popularity in 2020.

“While the name Margot has been rapidly climbing since actress Margot Robbie appeared in the popular film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.”

The ONS said mothers aged 35 years and over continued to choose more traditional names, while younger mothers opted for more modern and shortened names.

Milo and Otis rose 28 places since 2019 ranking 80th and 96th, and Maeve has risen 124 places, coming in at 94th.
