Some of the most popular names of 2017, so far, include Olivia, Lily, Sophie, Emily and Amelia for girls. Muhammed, Oliver, Harry, Jack and George are top of the pops for boys.

But let’s fast-forward and consider what might be heading to the top of the list next year, in 2018, inspired by popular culture and world events.

We're very excited that the Joan Lindsay novel - formerly brought to our screens by cinema legend Peter Weir - will be reimagined for telly in 2018. Perhaps a name inspired by this book is a good idea?

Minnie, Miranda, Dora, Irma and Marion are some lovely girls' choices. Albert, Louis and Tom for boys.

"Mirandaahhhhhhhh!"
