Other names like Jessica are not as popular with parents today compared to previous decades.
McCrindle experts said that in the mid-1980s and early 2000s, one in thirty baby girls was named Jessica.
“Today’s parents have more access to information than ever in history,” McCrindle wrote on his website.
“Parents are inundated with options, research, and meaning, all of which affect the names they choose for their children.”
As a result, parents have also started choosing more creative names for their newborn children.
