hmmm…

I like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Emma[/name_f], [name_f]Mia[/name_f] and [name_u]Harper[/name_u] form the girls and I like all of the boys except [name_u]Liam[/name_u] from the boys.

Nameberry’s top names trump Popular Baby Names I think…

[name_f]Gianna[/name_f] absolutely skyrocketed! I wonder if it is related to [name_m]Kobe[/name_m] Bryant’s daughter :broken_heart:

I also didn’t realize how popular [name_m]Henry[/name_m] is!

Why is [name_u]Londyn[/name_u] more popular than [name_u]London[/name_u]? Also sooooo many spellings of [name_f]Adeline[/name_f]. Sad to see [name_f]Camila[/name_f] getting so popular. [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] and [name_m]Henry[/name_m] are nice to see in the top 10, weird that [name_f]Isabella[/name_f] is no longer in the top 5!

I am NOT surprised at all, maybe a little with [name_u]Evelyn[/name_u]. :slight_smile:

I was shocked to see [name_f]Gianna[/name_f] shoot up that high, too! That was my first thought.

[name_m]Kobe[/name_m] jumped from 556 to 239, unsurprisingly :broken_heart:

but I also found …


king??? rank 171??? how???

I’m not surprised about most of the names. They don’t tend to change much each year.

The names beyond the Top 10 are much more interesting! [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] at 20? So many older, classic names rising?

This list coming out is like an early [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] present!

That’s what what I first noticed!

[name_f]Karen[/name_f] is still there???

[name_f]Stormi[/name_f] made the top 1000! :heart_eyes:

also, only [name_u]Parker[/name_u], [name_f]Aaliyah[/name_f], [name_f]Alana[/name_f], [name_f]Serena[/name_f], [name_f]Sabrina[/name_f], [name_f]Karissa[/name_f], [name_f]Bianca[/name_f], [name_f]Shauna[/name_f], [name_f]Summer[/name_f], [name_f]Angela[/name_f], [name_f]Rebecca[/name_f], [name_f]Melanie[/name_f], [name_u]Julie[/name_u], [name_f]Valerie[/name_f], [name_f]Cherry[/name_f] from my list increased in popularity, the other 61 names all fell in popularity :joy:

[name_f]Gianna[/name_f], [name_f]Natalia[/name_f], [name_f]Everleigh[/name_f] and [name_f]Leilani[/name_f] shocked me the most for the top 100!

[name_u]Liam[/name_u] is still number 1? How many years in a row is that now

Interesting, thanks for posting!
I wonder if [name_f]Rosalia[/name_f] is getting more attention because of the singer.

[name_f]Denise[/name_f] (and Denisse) being “new to the top 1000” is curious. I wonder if it’s because of the fashion for names that end with -is, -ise (etc.) in the Latin American community.

Gutted to see these rising in popularity for girls… [name_u]Marlowe[/name_u], [name_u]Scout[/name_u], [name_u]Bellamy[/name_u] :sob:

[name_f]Naya[/name_f] is back in the top 1000, now at 758, which pleases me. [name_f]Naya[/name_f] Rivera was a great person and performer, it’s nice to see others recognise that.

[name_f]Araceli[/name_f] & [name_m]Hakeem[/name_m] are standouts to me, of the new-to-the-charts names. Both are gorgeous
