2. Genghis
3. Santa
4. Oedipus
5. Clarkson
6. Attila
7. Mussolini
8. Pizza
9. Etc (pronounced Et Cetera)
10. Wheelbarrow

And for girls:

1. Gertrude
2. Hortensia
3. Wilhemina
4. Thatcher
5. Nigeletta
6. Venerea
7. Marshmallow
8. Harper Seven
9. Turkmenistan
10. Genghis

Other popular names which didn't make the list this year include Spanner, Kaiser, Lager, Tractor, Pansy and Dick for boys; and for girls, Nettle, Tampon, The Queen, Minivan, Wagner and C*nt.
