We may only be three days into 2023, but the most popular baby names of this year have already been predicted by a British name label manufacturer.
As is the case with most years, popular culture will influence the baby names that soon-to-be parents will choose for their children.
In 2022, England's Lionesses won the women's Euros, meanwhile the men's team made it to the quarter finals of the World Cup before being knocked out by France.
The name Jude is expected to rise up the charts, after the impressive display of Jude Bellingham for the men's team in Qatar.
Jack is also expected to rise up the charts, which made a comeback in 2022 in the top ten most popular boys names.
The success of the Lionesses at the Euros sees a host of first names from that victorious team be predicted that it will be popular this year.
These include Beth, Ella and Alessia - after Beth Mead, Ella Toone and Alessia Russo.
It is not just sport names that are expected to be popular this year, though.
Many parents will turn to popular TV shows for inspiration when naming their newborn.
One of them is Netflix's Wednesday, which has become extremely popular on the streaming platform becoming the second-most watched England language show ever.
As a result, the name Wednesday is expected to be chosen more than ever this year.
The names Arthur and Tommy have consistently remained popular since 2013 thanks to Peaky Blinders, and that isn't expected to change, according to mynametags.com.
As per The Mirror, Managing Director at My Nametags, said: "We know from experience that baby name trends are often influenced by pop-culture, including TV, film, and celebrities.
"Sporting personalities make excellent role models, so it's no surprise that parents continue to be inspired by their generation's biggest heroes when it comes to naming their children.
"2022 was a huge year for football fans, we can definitely expect the men's World Cup and Women's Euros teams to have a significant impact on the name charts over the next year, especially with the Women's World Cup taking place this summer."
"Popular TV shows and artists continue to have a major influence over the popularity of certain names as they give inspiration but also confidence to parents, especially with unusual names like Wednesday."
