Whether you go for something unusual like, 'October' , or something more in vogue, like 'Olivia' , apparently your choice says something about you.

Namely, which baby name 'tribe' you, as a mum (no mention of dads) fall into.

Mums have been put into tribes for years now: Earth Mother, Tiger Mum, Slummy Mummy, Boss B***h, but most parents have characteristics from each group – plus the categorisation can be a bit tiresome.

But with the 'baby name tribes', it's all a bit more straightforward and a lot more fun.

The tribes come courtesy of  Mumsnet  data, as parents on its baby names boards often suggest a name and ask: "If I like this, what else will I like?"

Taking inspiration from this, the website's data science team used statistical textual analysis techniques to give mums-to-be suggestions they might not have thought of, but will love.

So the various name tribes were born and range from "grandparent chic" to "flower power", "Disney divas" and "old schoolers".

Which do you belong to?

1. Flower power

A list with just girls' names, which include Rose, Violet, Lily, Ivy and Daisy.

2. Divinely inspired

Bit of a biblical theme here, with entries such as Mary, Joseph, Isaac and Noah.

3. Grandparent chic

These names incorporate popular name throwbacks like Dorothy, Wilfred, Ava, Alfie and Evelyn.

4. Short and sweet

Most popular names include Ben, Katie, Charlie, Theo and Teddie.

5. Tried, trusted traditionalists

In this category you'll find names such as Olivia, John, Jack, James and Oliver.

6. Cautious Celts

If you take inspiration from this tribe, you may love Rory, Angus, Siobhan and Caoimhe.

7. Disney Divas

Most popular names include Elsa, Aurora and Belle

8. Hidden gems

Again, one more for the girls with entries such as Ruby, Jade and Sapphire.

9. Old schoolers

Not quite as traditional as 'Grandparent chic' names, these include Sharon, Sarah, Claire, Paul and Keith.

10 . Last names first

Boys dominate list with entries such as Hunter, Tyler and Taylor.
