Change in Popularity (Jacoby and Khloe at the top!)
 
Change in Popularity

This SSA page shows which names jumped/dropped the most in the last year.

Are there any that surprise you?

I'm surprised these jumped up in popularity:

Alvin
Romeo
Keagan (I like the name but have NEVER met one)
Johan

Danna
Amari
Cara (wonder why it jumped up all of a sudden? Jon & Kate + 8 maybe?)
Fernanda

I'm surprised these dropped so much in popularity in just one year:

Leland
Tobias
Jadon (since the other spellings are still popular)
Scott

Alissa (ditto Jadon)
Hayley
Meredith
Savanna (ditto Jadon)

Chloe (with the C) has been at the top for a while, so I'm not surprised the alternate spelling jumped up so dramatically - people want the name but want their child to be set apart from all the other Chloe's. Nice idea.. but it obviously didn't work.

I'm kind of surprised about Kane - I've never met someone who walked on two legs with that name.

London, Harper, Miley, and Marlee/Marley all make sense - Disney Channel for the win, and then the golden retriever.

I don't think any of the top ones are too surprising...

Romeo is probably thanks to the Beckhams having a son named that and moving to America.

:eek: Jacoby jumped the most?! I don't know anyone else in person who has this name or plans on using it on a baby. I think Jacoby Ellsbury on the Boston Redsocks is the reason for this. He joined the team mid 2007 and since then, the name's been steady rising.

I don't think there are any real surprises for me - perhaps if *all* variations of the spelling of Jadon had fallen..

Oh you're probably right! I don't know anything about baseball so I had no idea. :lol:

I wish there was a way to gather all the same names with different spellings together. Sometimes I find that frustrating that Jadon will move down but Jaidon and Jaydon moved up. So unless you check out every spelling you could still end up with a very common name.
