2012 Top 100 Baby Names

My daughter is within top 100, but not top 10.
Neither DF or I seem to be on this list, but my spelling is a tad different from the original, so will look again.

My sisters name is in here.

DD is top 20. Neither DH or I are on there, doubt you'd get anyone under 35 with my name, maybe 30 for DH. My name very fashionable in the 60s, DH's not top 10 but not unusual.

My children have just about the most common names it is possible to have atm (although I named them 12 and 9 years ago).

Dh and I have incredibly common names for our respective birth years. I have 3 people with the same name as me on my phone and 3 with the same name as my dh.

We are all common as common could be! (and never give it a moment's thought).

DS1 top 40
DS2 top 50
Me - nope very Welsh only ever met one other
DH nope, surprised at that.

The full tables are here. Much more interesting.

top 20 and top 40 shock

RabbitIssue Mon 12-Aug-13 20:10:39

that was our two dds, dh and i aren't in there at all.

bluebump Mon 12-Aug-13 20:12:08

My DS is in the top 50, i'm in the top 100.

LynetteScavo Mon 12-Aug-13 20:13:19

We are all in the top 20 (which annoys me as I deliberately gave DC2 & 3 names near the bottom of the 100 list), apart for DH who is nowhere to be seen, although he was probably one of several in his class in the '70's.

OMG.
9, yep count 'em, NINE little baby girls were called Renesmee. in 2012.

<hoiks up judgey pants>

TallulahBetty Mon 12-Aug-13 20:17:02

Neither of us. DD's name is in the top 30.

MissStrawberry Mon 12-Aug-13 20:17:32

One son in top 10.

One daughter in top 25.

One son in top 45.

Dh nor I are in the top 100.

bridgetsmum Mon 12-Aug-13 20:27:28

I'm no 94, but the other 4 in the family aren't on the lists

VixZenFenchell Mon 12-Aug-13 20:28:41

DSs both in top 10. Mine and DPs not in there at all.

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Mon 12-Aug-13 20:29:25

DP, DS and I are not. DD is. Ds's middle name is there though.

the name thing doesnt bother me much. we chose names we liked, DD's is pretty popular. it's a good name [shrug]

MrsOakenshield Mon 12-Aug-13 20:30:26

see, this is why I think it's daft when people deliberately choose unpopular names - you just don't know how unpopular they will remain. Who cares! If it's a name you love, then that's all that matters, surely.

acrabadabra Mon 12-Aug-13 20:33:18

Ds is top 30. Dd is not on the list.

Dh and I have 70's names so not on the lists but due a comeback in a decade or so grin

LynetteScavo Mon 12-Aug-13 20:34:19

Only 76 boys called Jeremy? What is wrong with people - it's a brilliant name.

I'm really surprised there are only 50something boys with DSs middle name. I would have thought it would be much more popular.

Pachacuti Mon 12-Aug-13 20:34:22

I am. But I've never met another one of me over the age of about ten and spent my childhood being met with "you what?". DH and the DCs aren't.

Fanjango Mon 12-Aug-13 20:35:24

Dd2 in the top 50, ds2 in the top 80. Dd1 and ds1 not there and neither are me or dp

mydoorisalwaysopen Mon 12-Aug-13 20:35:33

DS 1+2 are both top twenty. Me and DH not on the list but no-one would ever comment that our names are unusual.

MrsMaryCooper Mon 12-Aug-13 20:36:22

DS in top twenty. Neither DH nor I are in the top 100. We don't have unusual names in our peer group.

absentmindeddooooodles Mon 12-Aug-13 20:36:28

Yep. Me, ds and my mum sister and brother are. Also my ds' s dad. Dp isnt. Disnt think any of us had typically popular names!
Never met any one else with the same name as ds either!

FreedomOfTheTess Mon 12-Aug-13 20:39:18

DS1 = #3
DS2 = #27
DD1 = #95
DD2 = #241

Me = #546
DH = #118

stopprocrastinating Mon 12-Aug-13 20:44:10

I'm top 100. DH isn't, but would have been popular when he was born. Much more popular than my name at school. DD is top 10.

treaclesoda Mon 12-Aug-13 20:48:46

DH, DD and DS are in it. Was surprised (and pleased!) at how low down DS's name is, I thought it was more popular than it is.

I'm not on the list although I bet I would be if it was 1912 rather than 2012
