Harry and Amelia were the most popular first names for babies born in England and Wales last year, according to the Office for National Statistics, a trend that may have been influenced by pop singers Harry Styles and Amelia Lily.
The most popular baby names were Oliver and Olivia in 2010, but it is thought the emergence of One Direction star Harry Styles and 2011 X-Factor finalist Amelia Lily may have had a strong effect on new parents.
Lily was also the most popular girl name for babies born in Wales in 2011.
For new baby boys, Harry was the most common name in seven English regions, including the North West, East and West Midlands and the South East.
One Direction, who formed on X-Factor in 2010, have experienced a huge rise in popularity this year, with number one albums in the UK and USA.
They became the first UK group in U.S. chart history to debut at number one with their debut album 'Up All Night' back in March.
Band member Harry Styles also hit the headlines himself for his short-lived high-profile relationship with X-Factor TV presenter Caroline Flack.
The boy-band also performed at the closing ceremony to the London 2012 Olympics last night.
Amelia Lily's debut single "You Bring Me Joy" is set to be released in 2 September, followed by her first album in November.
