Jack & Emily retain rankings as Britain's most popular baby names

UPI News Service, 01/05/2005 

In what could be a new British tradition, the names of Jack and Emily retained their standing as the most-often-given names to babies born in 2004.

It was the 10th year in a row that Jack topped all others when it came to naming boys, and it was the second year running that Emily held a similar honor among infant girl monikers, the BBC reported.

Jack, Joshua, Thomas, James and Daniel have been the top five boys' names since 2002, England's Office for National Statistics reported. Behind Emily in 2004 were Ellie, Jessica, Sophie and Chloe, which had been the most popular girls' name until 2003.

Mohammad entered the top 20 boys' names for the first time, and Evie was the highest new entry in the top 50 names for baby girls, the BBC reported.
