'Stanley' back in the top 100!

I would never have thought that 'Stanley' would ever start to become popular again.

Surprised to see Noah up to No. 32.

Strange how things change.
Of my 3 only 1 appears at all (way down) in the relevant top 100, yet they were all perfectly ordinary names at the time.  Huh

Strange that some names formerly mainly used informally are now actual registered names Jack (John), Harry (Henry), Alfie (Alfred), Charlie (Charles)
Yet Ollie, Josh, Tom, Will/Bill, Jim, Danny have not replaced their formal counterparts as most popular names.
Why Oliver? If the increased  popularity of Oliver were down to Lord Lloyd Webber then Nancy should also feature.
