Arthur and Ada have emerged in the most popular names list for the first time in a century.

In the early 1900s Arthur was a permanent fixture in the top ten most popular boys’ names before falling out of favour in 1924.

However, in 2018 it re-entered the charts at number seven, and then by the following year had slid into fourth position.

Similarly, Ada hadn’t been in the top 100 list of girls’ names since 1924, but in 2018 it made it into 65th and by the following year had risen to 47th.
