You gotta admit there has certainly been some binge-worthy TV over the last year or so, particularly during COVID lockdown.

Schitt’s Creek, Bridgerton, Tiger King, Normal People.

According to the baby name experts, parents are now taking inspiration from their favourite TV characters for their new babies.

UK baby shop Bella Baby believes Bridgerton could cause a spike in Regency names such as Cressida or Jeffrey.

Babycentre reported an increase in babies called Tiger in 2020, following the popularity of Netflix’s Tiger King.

Connell has also been on the rise thanks to the series Normal People.

Schitt’s Creek characters David and Alexis have both sparked a rise on popular baby name lists.
