Peaky Blinders now most popular name for baby boys

PEAKY Blinders is now the most popular name for baby boys, with Killing Eve the most popular for girls. 

More than 5,300 boys were named Peaky Blinders after the BBC show in 2018, up from 4,500 the year before, with every primary school class in 2023 expected to have at least one Peaky.

Emma Bradford, proud mother of 12-day-old Peaky Blinders Bradford, said: “It’s just a really classic name that won’t date, unlike all these Georges and Henrys.

“For me it conjures visions of flat caps, cobbled alleyways, soot-covered minors keeping a watch out for the police while a Birmingham man cuts a business rival’s cheek with a razor. It’s just so English.”

Statistician Julian Cook said: “Game of Thrones has gone down in popularity as has The Walking Dead, though we expect the surge in boys named Avengers: Infinity War to be matched by this year’s crop of boys named Avengers: Endgame.

“However more traditional names like ‘Allo ‘Allo, Prime Suspect and The Office have fallen out of the top 100 completely. People just see them as old-fashioned.”

Dad-to-be Stephen Malley, aged 26, said: “People should use their imaginations and choose something personal. Like, my daughter’s called Deadwood Malley. Have you seen it? It’s brillant.”

Have you missed the PPI deadline? Claim compensation NOW

DID you forget that the deadline to claim PPI compensation was August 29th, 2019? 

THROUGH no fault of your own, have you missed your opportunity to claim thousands of pounds from banks and building societies?

IS it not fair?

Then go online now, and with a few simple clicks you can put in a claim for CASH compensation for your injury in not receiving PPI compensation which you may or may not originally have been owed.

Nathan Muir of Colchester said: “I got a loan out in 2001 and I probably didn’t ask for payment protection insurance, though I couldn’t swear on my nan’s life or anything.

“Anyway, I never noticed any of the PPI compensation adverts incessantly on TV, radio, the internet or newspapers over the last eight years, didn’t claim, and now believe the government owes me thousands for their negligence.”

You only have six years to claim, so don’t waste time and put your claim in today!

Claims management companies will take up to 80 per cent of your received compensation. Your bank will only rip you off some other way. Society is the worse for your greed.
