Other names like Jessica are not as popular as parents now compared to previous decades.

Experts at McCrindle say between the mid-1980s and early 2000s one out of every 30 baby girls was named Jessica.

“Today’s parents have more access to information than any other time in history,” McCrindle wrote on his website.

“Parents are flooded with choices, research, and meaning, all of which affect the name they choose for their children.”

As a result, parents also began to choose more creative names for their newborn children.
