I've noticed that sometimes posters will say how many children received a particular name in any given year, is there a website that gives the figures. We are planning another dc this year and it might be useful.
If you want to know exactly how many girls with the same name as your DD were registered in 2009, not just the place in the top 100, click on the 6th tab along the bottom of the spreadsheet ('table 6, girls names E&W' then do a 'ctl & f' to search for your daughter's name.
Let us know if you are pleased or otherwise with what you find!
Thanks for that link NotAnother. Does anyone know whether the list of all names (the last tab) counts middle names too? Or does the number of times a specific name is used only refer to first (and therefore used) names?
For example, if a name was used 13 times in 2009, does this mean there are 13 little boys with that name around (rather than some boys having these names as middle names)?
