When thinking up baby names, inspiration can come from all over. Some people like to keep it in the family, using names passed down through generations. Others like to go on what's popular at the time, while many new parents are after something a bit more unique.
Then, of course, there are the people who seek out ideas for baby names based on what's culturally relevant at the time. TV shows are often a source of such inspiration, and in previous years we've seen Peaky Blinders lead the way, with names like Ada and Arthur climbing the baby name ranks quickly. So what's the 2021 version of that? Netflix's Bridgerton, it seems...
The experts over at baby website Bella Baby are confident the new period drama will signal a spike in Regency era names among the incoming batch of babies, and have highlighted the ones they're already seeing some interest around, inspired by some of your favourite characters.
