Anybody know when they are going to publish the data on baby names for 2012? I remember they'd published it by this time last year.

Yeah one of mine is it the top 10 too. So annoying.

Agree blue beau for a girl makes literally no sense

Agh! Beau is 169th for girl's names. That just makes me stabby. Beau is masculine as any fule kno.

Both my DDs names are now in the top 10 and are often mentioned on MN as being very popular '6 in every class' sort of thing .DD1's I have only met 1 other child with the same name ever,either at school or socially,and that child's mum is a friend who asked me if I minded her calling her DD the same as mine. DD2's name is even higher on the list and I have never met another anywhere.

BAH! My DD's name is now in top ten!!! Didn't ever know anyone with her name before she was born!!

Tyrion is a Welsh name so that's legit.

Can't get over the baby Rogers!

Mooshe - you shouldn't joke about such things! You're giving people ideas. I could see that catching on!

KittenofDoom Wed 14-Aug-13 13:50:21

I know someone who spells her name Hellen grin

Heaven backwards? Really?! I was looking at the comments about Nevaeh and wondering what in particular was wrong with it, if it was the name of some TV character I hadn't come across, or a Gaelic name (for example) that was being spelled as it sounded to non-Gaelic ears. Surely you could just call your child Heaven, if you wanted to? or Hell, if you particularly wanted the opposite of Heaven

Maybe I'll call my next child Evol wink

It even sounds a bit like bleugh.

GW297 Wed 14-Aug-13 12:21:53

Annie - 100% agree. That is exactly what I thought. I cringe when I come across Nevaeh's in classrooms. Looks as though there will be a proliferation of them in the next few years though. Calling your child heaven spelt backwards is just bleugh!

Or as I think I mentioned earlier, Neveyah which I spotted on CBeebies birthdays earlier this week.

Actually, I'm coming to think I'd rather see it spelt like a name and chosen for its pronunciation than used as "heaven backwards" which is just frankly bizarre.

GW297 - Neveah may be even worse. I mean, Nevaeh is "heaven" spelled backwards, which is just cringeworthy and awful, but Neveah is Heaven spelled backwards incorrectly, which is infinitely more awful!!

Horry, it is a good list, but you have disagreement about Ava and Evelyn because they are totally different names.

GW297 Wed 14-Aug-13 01:34:58

Annie - I loathe the name Nevaeh too and have you seen Neveah as well?!

5madthings Wed 14-Aug-13 00:35:58

Duh blush I have the 2011 in one tab and 2012 in another along with 2010 and 1999, 2002 and 2004 and 2008 as I am comparing the years my children were born to now...confusing myself, its late, am full of cold.... Thank you!

KittenofDoom Wed 14-Aug-13 00:02:41

I think you are looking at the 2011 names wink

5madthings Tue 13-Aug-13 23:56:20

Yes, it is there. It's in the 3681 block, under Nethra and above Nevaeh-Rose hmm

5madthings Tue 13-Aug-13 23:44:45

Yes it takes you neveah rose and a few similar names but no actual Neva on its own. There seem to be variant spellings tho. Its certainly not a common name.

KittenofDoom Tue 13-Aug-13 23:34:40

Use the 'Find' function, top right.

5madthings Tue 13-Aug-13 23:25:00

With that spelling? I tralked through the decking list and didn't see it! My cousin will be pleased its her fave name for bump if its a girl smile

KittenofDoom Tue 13-Aug-13 23:19:54

Six of 'em smile

5madthings Tue 13-Aug-13 22:03:32

I have just been looking for Neva but I couldn't see it, I did find neeva and neevah really low down but not Neva. Am I being blind or is it not there? It means snow and something else wintery smile
