MIA and William were Hamilton’s favourite baby names for 2013.
Birth announcements for four Williams and three Mias were recorded in The Spectator this year.
Hamilton woman, Ath Archer, has been recording baby names from The Spectator for nearly two decades.
More than 4500 births have been reported in the paper since Ms Archer started recording names in 1996 – 2287 girls and 2309 boys.
The number of births has steadily declined from 323 in 1996 to this year’s low of 160.
Of the 70 baby girls born this year, 107 different first and last names were used.
While Mia was the most popular, it was only one place in front of Amelia, Ava, Emma, Fiona, Grace, Lucy, Olivia, Jessica, Matilda, Ruby, Sophie and Beatrice.
Grace overtook Jane as the most popular middle name while Louise, Rose and Kate were also popular.
For the 90 boys, parents chose 117 different first and second names.
William was a clear winner among the boys, while Thomas and Aiden also proved popular.
