Baby names that need to make a comeback in 2016.

Baby name stats from no less than 49 countries have been collated, and a winning name has been revealed.

Sophias everywhere, congratulations, come claim your trophies. Yours is officially the most popular baby name in the world.

Sophia is the most popular name in Mexico, Italy and Russia, and also made the top three names in the U.S. and 20 other countries worldwide.

As happy as we are for all the Sophias out there, we can’t help wishing that other names made their way back to the top of the baby names ladder.

We want to see a return of the classics… like Sue, or Trevor. You never meet a Trevor under the age of 56 anymore, do you?

No. You don’t.

When was the last time you heard of someone naming their baby Vicky? Or Julie? Or Lynda?
