 * A new entry to the Top 100.

The difference between the separate England Top 100 and Wales Top 100 is also worth noting.

In Wales, Cody (61), Carter (61), Eli (71), Rowan (74), Macsen (78), Ifan (86), Cole (88) and Jesse (98) for boys and Lois (69), Nevaeh (82), Mila (85), Eleri (96) and Elsa (99) for girls all rose in the Welsh top 100, but sit below it in England.

On the other hand, England‘s top 100 boasts Stanley (60), Jude (63), Teddy (66), Hugo (70), Albert (82), Ronnie (85) and Sonny (95) for boys and Harriet (61), Zara (65), Violet (71), Maryam (73), Aisha (75), Nancy (90) and Penelope (100) for girls. These all moved up in England‘s top 100, but remain below the top 100 in Wales.
