These 10 Baby Names Are Also The Most Expensive Street Names

If you live on a street that contains one of this year’s most desirable baby names, you could see the value of your property rocket. Hear us out.

That’s according to Barratt Homes, who put together an online ‘street finder tool’, which allows you to search the HM Land Registry database for your name.

In comparison to the average UK house price of £231,185, the study showed streets with popular names such as ‘Charlotte’ (the Princess Royal) and ‘Harper’ (Beckham) are of substantially higher value.

I gave it a shot and put my name into the tool, only to discover houses on ‘Victoria Street’ cost, on average, £50,830 – but there was one on the list in Hertfordshire for a cool £2,425,000.

We have a wealth of baby name inspiration on HuffPost UK Parents. Here are 10 of the most valuable street names to consider for your little one.
