Popular Names
 
I'm curious... putting aside the top 100 name lists we have, what names from your area are popular from YOUR experiences.

---

In my area (QLD, Australia) I have noticed that a lot of unisex names or typically boy names are becoming more popular for girls... such as Kolby/Kolbi, Avery, Reese, Ryan etc. That being said my own name, Sophie, is becoming increasingly popular... I never knew any other Sophie's growing up. I was surprised to meet several little girls called Jennifer too.

For boys the most popular name I have come across is Oliver... which I love so I hate how common it has become. I've also noticed a lot of Alexander's... which I guess isn't that surprising. But some older fashioned names such as Arthur, Archie/Archer, Edward (Twilight :rolleyes:) are quite prevalent too.

According to SSA, the top 10 for each gender in my state are:

Jayden
Jacob
Michael
Anthony
Alexander
Ethan
Joshua
Daniel
Matthew
Gabriel

Isabella
Sophia
Olivia
Emma
Emily
Mia
Ava
Madison
Abigail
Chloe

I know an Ethan and a Gabriel, and they're both about 9ish. And there's an Isabella who's around 3. I don't personally know any of the other ones. The most recent babies born around me are Truman, David, and Margaret (Maggie).

Northern California here. Elliana/Eliana and Damien though the one boy named Damien is actually Damian? (Bulgarian version).

These are names I've heard loads of recently, here in England:

Jacob, Oliver and Noah are so popular right now with boys, Oliver is becoming increasingly so.

Evie and Olivia are very popular, there are lots of Olivias at my eldests school, and loads of Evies around the same age as Caspar. Isabel is also very popular, we met two at the park over the last few weeks.

Oliver and Olivia were the most popular names in the UK for 2010
