Beth has been named as the top children’s name for personalised gifts this year at children’s theme park Gulliver’s.

Gulliver’s Kingdom has sold thousands of personalised pens, rubbers, keyrings, cups and more at its three theme park locations, including Matlock, throughout 2011, but girl’s name Beth topped the polls as the most popular name by far.

Just a single product was sold with the name Thomas, making it this year’s least popular name at Gulliver’s.
