This is the third year running that both names have jointly claimed the highest spot - with Oliver for boys remaining at number one for six years, and Olivia taking the crown as the most popular from this year's second-placed Amelia back in 2016.

A growing trend for vintage names continues with Ivy finding a place in the top 10 among the girls whilst Ada returned to the top 100 names in England and Wales since 1924 whilst there were also mentions in the overall list of 100 names for Delilah and Margot too, which are both listed for the first time.

Whilst among the boys Arthur has made a leap up the rankings however the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's choice Archie has not yet appeared in the South East's top 10 albeit it remains to be seen if his birth in May this year will have some influence on 2019 charts.
