The Royal Family and Game Of Thrones have a lot to answer for...

It's that time of year when we start looking back at everything that's passed, and give our predictions for 2018.

While we're still no closer to finding out whether we'll have an Oasis reunion, one thing we do have is some idea of are what baby names will be popular next year.

As The Metro reports, Harry and Olivia are set to be the most popular boys and girls names for next year, each topping a list of 20.

Royal names do well in general with George and Charlotte both making the list.

Names that end in 'a' seem to dominate the girls' names chart, which also features the Game Of Thrones-inspired moniker, Aria-although spelled slightly differently to Maisie Williams' character. 

Also on the girls list are the likes of Isla, Lily, Florence and Freya- with Ruby and Matilda also making an appearance.

When it comes to the boys, it seems we're destined to hear cockney grandad's names for another year, with Alfie, Oscar, Teddy and Archie all on the list.
