2008 List is Up!!!

What do you think of the list? I’m really surprised [name]Emma[/name] is number one and not [name]Isabella[/name]!

Interesting how [name]Alexander[/name] jumped from 11 to 6, when the rest of the boys stayed relatively the same. (The top five didn’t even budge!)

I was positive [name]Isabella[/name] would be #1! I’m also surprised that [name]Chloe[/name] jumped into the top 10 while [name]Addison[/name] actually dropped a peg. My guess is that [name]Addison[/name] is more prone to “kreaytive” spellings :wink: I thought [name]Ava[/name] would likely move up a bit too.

Here were my guesses… Had some pretty right on! (Well for the girls at least, the boys not as much)

Girls

  1. [name]Emma[/name]
  2. [name]Ava[/name]
  3. [name]Emily[/name]
  4. [name]Isabella[/name]
  5. [name]Madison[/name]
  6. [name]Olivia[/name]
  7. [name]Sophia[/name]
  8. [name]Addison[/name]
  9. [name]Abigail[/name]
  10. [name]Elizabeth[/name]

Boys

  1. [name]Jacob[/name]
  2. [name]Jack[/name]
  3. [name]Aidan[/name]
  4. [name]Owen[/name]
  5. [name]Ethan[/name]
  6. [name]Noah[/name]
  7. [name]Logan[/name]
  8. [name]Alexander[/name]
  9. [name]Samuel[/name]
  10. [name]Gavin[/name]

Wow… I just printed the full list. A few surprises:

[name]Mia[/name] is 14. WOW!

Also [name]Sofia[/name] is 36, so if you combined [name]Sophia[/name] and [name]Sofia[/name] I bet you’re close to number 1.

Also [name]Jayden[/name] was 11 for boys. ICK.

And [name]Luke[/name] was 43 ahead of [name]Lucas[/name] at 46 which I find very interesting.

Could someone please post a link to the list? I can’t seem to find it.
Thanks a lot!!!
