The most popular Bridgerton-inspired girls’ names

Ranking at the top, much-like show’s beloved Queen, is Charlotte. Charlotte has been a firm favourite over the last couple of decades and has never dropped out of the top 30. It was also the name of choice for Prince William and Duchess Kate for their baby girl born in 2015. With that all being said, Charlotte is sure to continue to climb the rankings over the coming years. Following Charlotte’s lead is Eloise, Violet, Penelope, Genevieve, Marina, Daphne, Portia and Philipa.

The most popular Bridgerton-inspired boys’ names

Topping the boy’s list is William, inspired by the show’s ever-cool boxer William Mondrich. As a favoured royal name, and with the birth of Prince William in 1982, it’s no surprise it’s held strong in the top 20 over recent years. William is followed by Henry, Anthony, Simon, Benedict, Gregory, Archibald and Colin.

1 – William
2 – Henry
