Louise Thomas, Life Insurance Expert at, comments:

"Picking the right name for your baby can be one of the most exciting aspects of your entire pregnancy experience. Today, baby name inspirations seem to be taken from everything around us, including our favourite TV shows.

"Our research shows that fans of Love Island seem to be naming their newborns after popular contestants from the show. Data shows a rise in the popularity of those particular iconic names, from the likes of Olivia and Millie to Tommy and Teddy.

"Having children can be one of the most common reasons why people take out life insurance, as that money can be used to help with day-to-day costs as well as for inheritance reasons."
