Welcome to the world, Atticus and Aurora!

Those are just two of the more exotic names to have made the top ten baby name list for 2016, along with more traditional names such as Charlotte and Henry.

The findings, from website Nameberry, show that the most popular girl’s name for 2016 so far is Olivia and the most popular boy’s name is the less conventional Ezra.
