The most popular girls’ name in The Irish Times’ birth announcements column last year was Chloe, while both Jack and Andrew were the most popular boys’ names. The second most popular girls’ names were Lauren and Lucy; the second most popular boys’ names were Daniel and Hugo. In third place were variations of the name Isabelle, and, for the boys, Charlie, Cian, and Sebastian.
