In second and third place are the names Eloise and Violet, followed by Penelope, Genevieve, Marin and Daphne. The monikers Portia and Philipa fall in eighth and ninth place, inspired by the Featherington mother and daughter duo in the show.

When it comes to the top boys' name, William, inspired by Will Mondrich, the boxer from season one, tops the list. Prince William will be chuffed with that. Even better, the name Henry (Prince Harry's birth name) holds the second spot.

Anthony, named after the eldest Bridgerton sibling Anthony Bridgerton, comes in third, followed by Simon, Benedict and Gregory.

In seventh place is the moniker, Archibald. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's eldest son is named Archie, which is a shortened version of the name.

We feel a Bridgerton baby takeover coming on…
