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 ) are quite prevalent too.
Thanks Babydoll213 for my wonderfully festive siggie!
According to SSA, the top 10 for each gender in my state are:
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).
Sophia is pretty popular, along with Bella. I've also noticed that McNames are pretty common.
Mom to 4 beautiful kids! 3 on Earth and 1 in heaven. Our little girl, Matilda Hope had Down Syndrome. She was born with TMD, a disease that is like leukemia. She fought that and beat it. Then, she had liver failure. She beat that, too. On October 17, 2014 she had NEC, necrotizing enterocolitis. My baby went to Heaven on October 19, 2014. She lived exactly one month.
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
