The hit TV show, Peaky Blinders, has inspired the names of newborns across the United Kingdom with names such as Arthur and Ada showing a significant upsurge.

The Office for National Statistics showed that Arthur regained a top 10 place in UK baby names while Ada joined the top 100 girls names in the UK.

Peaky Blinders is set in early 20th Birmingham and centers in on the Shelby family, an organised crime unit who essentially control the Midlands city.
