The Royals are pretty big news at the moment, with the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first baby being just weeks away.

Unsurprisingly, the royal family are known to have a pretty heavy cultural influence; not only where fashion and beauty are concerned, but also in terms of baby names. The Telegraph noted, for instance, that Charlotte had become their readers' most popular baby name following the birth of the young princess in 2015.
