A UK survey has revealed that British parents spend 30 million hours a year picking the names of their newborn children.

The survey by Abbey Banking showed that parents spend  up to 45 hours choosing the name of their child, which adds up to a combined 30 million hours annually in Britain.

Up to two million parents thought a name could help their child’s career prospects.

National statistics show that Grace, Ruby and Olivia rank as the current top names for girls and Jack, Thomas and Oliver for boys.
