...and it tells you its ranking in popularity in the UK?

Just want to avoid the whole I-thought-I-was-being-original problem grin

go here

then click on boys names for 2009. it will open an excel sheet. there are tabs at the bottom. scroll across to table six. Highlight the whole grid and then re-organise alphabetically. Search for the name you like. if you have all parts of the grid, it will tell you what position it's at.

Same for girls.

I think that's the one way to do it.

Thanks for the link, SecretNutella. The list showing ALL baby names used is great - there are so, so many lovely names outside of the top100.

Wow, love that smile

There were 3 little girls with my name in 2009, not even that many the year before!

That's a helpful list. Can't believe how many little Jacks must be out there by now shock.
