The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has published its yearly update to statistics on the popularity of baby names.

It's more bad news for Gary, who has been on the decline for a while.

It appears 2015 did nothing to help Gary's fortunes, whether you look at the ranking of the name...

...or the overall count of babies being named Gary.

Gary is at a historic low.

We'll have to wait to next year to see if Leicester's Premier League title win did anything to raise Gary's popularity.
