The Netflix show has proved to be a huge hit, so it's no surprise that Bridgerton baby names have soared in popularity.

Choosing the perfect name for your child isn't easy, there are so many to pick from and it's hard to decide whether to choose a unique baby name or something more traditional - such as these names that have been popular since the 1920s

Many choose to take inspiration from their favourite books and TV shows, which is why it comes as no surprise that Bridgerton baby names are set to be some of the most popular baby names in 2023. Set in London in 1813, the series includes plenty of 19th century inspired names - though some are more historically accurate than others.

What are the Bridgerton children's names?

The eight Bridgerton siblings are called Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory and Hyacinth. Anthony is the oldest - he's 30 in the first season - while youngest sibling Hyacinth is 11.

As you may have noticed, the Bridgerton children are named alphabetically, from oldest to youngest. In the first season of the show, Viscountess Bridgerton explains that she and her late husband decided to name their children in this way because they found it orderly.

What is Daphne and Simon's baby name?

Daphne and Simon's baby is called August - nicknamed Augie. The name is revealed by Daphne in season two, and suggests the Duke and Duchess are sticking to the Bridgerton family tradition of naming their children in alphabetical order.

This differs to the baby names in Julia Quinn's original Bridgerton books, in which Simon and Daphne's first child is called Amelia, followed by two more daughters, Belinda and Caroline, before welcoming two sons, David and Edward.

Where can you watch Bridgerton?

Netflix is the place to watch it, here you can catch up on the first two seasons. Bridgerton is a glossy period drama with a modern twist, it started in late 2020 and was excellent viewing. Rhonda Shimes, the shows producer ensured it was full of scandal, drama, sex, romance, and amazing classical twists on modern songs. It was the TV series that had us all hooked on Lady Whistledown's gossip from start to finish. 

The first series was inspired by Juila Quinn's book - 'The Duke and I' - which is the first of eight so there is plenty of material to see us binge on Bridgerton for quite a while longer. Season 2 is now available and Netflix has already confirmed a season 3 and 4 so far.
