(Mirror) – Celebrities continue to be a source of inspiration for new parents choosing names for their children.

Coleen and Wayne Rooney’s name choices have been extremely popular this year, with twice as many babies called Kit and Klay compared to last year.

But Olivia is officially the most popular name for girls and Oliver the most popular for boys.

Lily and Sophie are second and third in the girl’s list, with Muhammed the second most popular boy’s name and Noah the third, as reported by Liverpool Echo.

But Victoria Beckham’s daughter Harper has apparently become a young trend-setter – her name has jumped 31 places to 56 in the girl’s list.

And there was a late surge in parents choosing the name River, after Jamie Oliver picked the name for his new son.

In recent years there has also been a rise in baby names inspired by nature. Lily, Poppy, Daisy and Holly all jumped up this year’s list within the top 50.

The top 100, which was compiled by parenting site BabyCentre, also highlights how comic book-inspired names Kara (Supergirl), Harley and Quinn (Suicide Squad) and Felicity and Thea (Aarow) have all climbed the chart.

There’s also been a rise in galactic-themed names including Nova, Orion and Luna, while Star Wars-inspired names Leia, Kylo and Finn have also had a boost
