London, Dec 30 (ANI): 'Olivia' for a girl and 'Jack' for a boy have emerged as Britain's most popular baby names of 2008 in a new survey by the Bounty parenting club.

According to researchers who analysed the trends in this year's baby names, there has been a return to silver screen glamour as names inspired by Hollywood, such as Sofia, Julia, Darcy and Amelie, have all shown a revival, reports Times Online.

Meanwhile, the name Amy fell in popularity, possibly due to the declining personal fortunes of the singer Amy Winehouse, who has battled drug and health problems.

However, Blake, the first name of Winehouse's husband Blake Fielder-Civil, has entered the top 100 boys' names for the first time.

Top 10 boys' and girls' names:

1. Jack, Olivia

2. Oliver, Ruby

3. Harry, Grace

4. Charlie, Emily

5. Alfie, Jessica

6. Thomas, Sophie

7. Joshua, Chloe

8. Daniel, Lily

9. James, Mia

10. William, Lucy (ANI)
