A new study conducted by website has discovered that Corbyn is one of the hottest baby names of 2017, with over 50% of parents surveyed saying they would consider naming their child Corbyn after the Labour leader.

1,305 parents were included in the survey across the UK and 15% of them added they would consider Jeremy as an alternate option. Other options included Theresa May, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump, but only 4% said they would consider Theresa while 5% said they would ponder Boris or Donald.

"Corbyn is the stand-out naming trend this year and a strong name encompassing both the surname as first name and political name trend,” said Siobhan Freegard, the founder of "We expect to see lots of babies conceived at Glastonbury or over the election period named after the Labour leader. But remember a week is a long time in politics and your child will have to have that name for a lifetime, so make sure you are sure before naming them after any politician."
