GARYS could be wiped out within a generation after it emerged there have been no children named Gary since 1992.
Once common across Britain, experts believe the country could be at ‘zero Gary’ by the year 2050.
Tom Logan, a Gary campaigner, said: “Thirty years ago our playgrounds were teeming with Garys. Simple, straightforward boys who just wanted to be radio DJs.
“But they have been driven out by Kyles, Noahs, Jordans and Masons. Foreign sounding names for suspicious, unreliable children.”
Logan, who tours maternity hospitals promoting the name Gary, said: “We’ve already lost Alan, the last Ken is living in a shed in Farnborough and the Lees that were once at every party claiming they knew martial arts are increasingly rare.
“Please, name your baby Gary. He’ll grow into it.”
