These are the baby names predicted to be HUGE in 2019… with inspiration from hit shows like Bodyguard and Killing Eve

Well, these are the names predicted to be huge in 2019 – with some inspired by cult TV shows which aren't exactly child-friendly.

The Disney effect is still clear to see with the continued popularity of names like Elsa and Anna from Frozen.

But we'll also see names inspired by shows including Bodyguard, Game of Thrones and Killing Eve, according to Baby Centre.

Box set babies

Cult TV shows have been inspiring baby names for years – but which ones are on the rise right now?

With the final series of Game of Thrones on the horizon, the likes of Sansa, Tyrion, Jon and Dany (short for Daenerys) are thought to be gaining in popularity.

Aria/Arya broke into the top 10 for the first time this year, and is likely to remain popular in 2019.

We can also look forward to the revival of more conventional names Julia and David, thanks to the success of Bodyguard – which became BBC's most watched box set ever this year.

With a second series of Killing Eve in the pipeline, Eve is also set to become more popular – while BabyCentre think some might even plump for assassin Vilanelle or Oksana for their little girls.

70s throwback

Last year saw the revival of 80s names Michael and John – and now parents are thought to be throwing it even further back.

There was a surprise increase in 70s favourites Barry, Brian and Patricia this year – and we should also look out for tots named Cliff, Christine and Susan in 2018.

Talk of the 'toon

Not all the new names are inspired by post-watershed TV shows.

Peter's also on the rise, thanks to the popular rabbit – who had his first big screen film earlier this year.

BabyCentre predict a similar spark in popularity for naming kids after Peter Rabbit author Beatrix Potter and characters like Jemima Puddleduck – but don't expect to see Flopsy, Mopsy or Cottentail at nursery anytime soon.

The adorable Paw Patrol pups are also expected to have an influence – with names Ryder, Chase, Marshall and Rocky on the rise.

Bing appeared in the registrations for the first time this year, most likely thanks to the CBeebies series of the same name.

While Roly, from Hey Duggee, also made his debut and Dougie, the more conventional spelling of the show's main character, also rose in popularity.

Great escape

The parenting website also predict a rise in babies named after far flung destinations.

We're set to see a revival of India among young girls, as well as a rise in boys called Dallas, Israel and Cairo.

Only time will tell if these unusual names overtake the likes of Paris and Chelsea…

We recently revealed the most popular baby names of 2018, including one inspired by Kate Middleton and William's baby prince.
