Thomas tanks into the baby name lead
This marks a big increase in popularity from last year, though it has featured prominently in the list for the past decade.
Thomas just edges into first place, ahead of that perennial favourite Jack.
Another popular choice of recent years, William, has fallen behind Joseph/Joe and Frederick/Freddy this year.
Toby, our joint second place last year, has disappeared from this year's list, though overall the trend from previous years for 'older' names and diminutives continues strongly.

A feature of the girls' list in recent years has been alternative spellings and diminutives on favourite names.
This year, for example, we have Annie, Abbie, Evie and Hettie, Emily/Emilia, Annabel/Annabelle and Sophia/Sofie/Sophie.
One name that has been gaining in popularity in recent years is Olivia, which so far has been immune to the fashion for alternatives.
More unusual names spotted include Irie and Miya.
