The Surprising Baby Names That Are Going EXTINCT

They say you never realise how many people you dislike - or have dated - until you try naming your kids.

The upsetting (for anyone called Gary) info comes from BabyCentre, who have rustled up some data on the names new parents are no longer registering for their newborns.

Joining Gary on the chopping block are classics like Nigel, Angela, Dennis and - wait for it - Sheila.
