Every second, four babies are born, meaning that every day an estimated 353,000 babies are spouted out into the world, but what will their parents name them?

Well, apparently it’s more a matter of what not to name them – as a new debate has revealed that many of our favourite names are going ‘extinct’.

In the aftermath of the shocking results, we spoke to a Jennifer who said:

I think it’s great. Hopefully at some point in the future, there’ll be no more Jennifer’s around and I’ll be the only one. I won’t even have to use my surname any more.

That’s one way to look at it, Jen.
