Hertfordshire parents have resisted the temptation to name their children after Game of Thrones characters.
Last year The Office for National Statistics reported large numbers of parents naming their children after their favourite characters from the fantasy series. Arya
was the most popular of these and there were also many babies named Khaleesi, Daenerys and Sansa.
In Hertfordshire, however, parents have gone down a more traditional route and the most popular names for boys are Jack, George and Harry, while, for girls, parents chose Amelia, Emily and Sophie.
The name breakdown in St Albans and across the county is as follows:
Boys: Oliver. Runners up: Harry, George, Alfie, Freddie
Girls: Amelia. Runners up: Olivia, Poppy, Isabella, Sophia
Boys: Jack. Runners up: George, Edward, Harry, Samuel

Chris Hayward, Cabinet Member for the Registration Service, said: "Every year, I’m fascinated to see what names are chosen. I expected to see a revival of the name Charlotte, following the birth of the royal baby last May, but this doesn’t seem to have happened.
