London, Sept 23 (ANI): A large number of Britons are calling their babies Brooklyn, after ace footballer David Beckhams sons name, according to new figures.

The latest trend gripping British parents is to name their babies after celeb kids, and topping the list of copied names is Lennon, after Oasis singer Liam Gallaghers son, copied 230 times.

Parents are increasingly creative about the names they choose and many are taking their inspiration from celebs, The Daily Star quoted Faye Mingo, of Bounty, as saying.

Brooklyn stands second at 185, while there are 29 Romeos and 21 boys called Cruz, named after Becks other kids.

Parenting club, Bounty, from its large database of baby names, compiled the list, which claims that there are 700 baby Lolas, named after nickname of Madonnas girl Lourdes.

Lola, which is also the name of Emmerdale babe Lucy Pargeters daughter, was the most copied girls name, followed by Lexie, name of footie star Steven Gerrard and Alex Currans daughter. (ANI)
