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.

Dd1 is in the top 50, middle name is in top 10.
Dd2 is not in top 100 but middle name is in top 20.
My name isn't in there, which I'm surprised about but middle name is in the top 50. None of DH's names there.

DP is 30's and DD is 50's. My name has never been anywhere near the top 100, and never will (with good reason).

Just had a look of the looooong full list! My Ds name isn't even on there, less than 3 of his name last year! Didn't realise it was that unusual. My DD is there but only 8 of them!

My name is there. It is fairly popular nowadays and was in top 10 a few years ago although it wasn't as common when I was born in the 70s. DH is in there as is my sister. But my DD has a v uncommon name (not even an odd spelling - just not a very common name). She's not in top 100 or even top 1000. If you look at the full list, her name is somewhere around 2500th. The number of people registered with her name last year (of which she is one) was in single figures. And my mum's name doesn't even feature although I think it was probably in the top 10 when she was born due to the popularity of a certain curly-haired child actress with that name.

All 3 of our dc are in the top ten, I was surprised as they are v. nearly aged 22, 18 and 9. They certainly weren't popular at the time.
Neither me nor dhs names are in the top 100.

Hatecoffee Tue 20-Aug-13 20:59:37

None of us are on the list. We have welshy names and don't even come on the top 100 of the Wales one!

Can anyone link to list for more than a 100... I have goggled but can't find anything. Is there any list to find out how many xnames was born in 1984 etc. thanks.

MummyBeerest Mon 19-Aug-13 01:03:18

I'm not on the list. I never am. sad

DH and DD are in the Top 50.

goldenlula Mon 19-Aug-13 00:27:40

Ds2 and dh are in the top 5 (different names though)
Ds1 is in the to 50 and dd is in the top 40.
I am not in the top 100.

2children2cats Sun 18-Aug-13 08:49:59

Me and the children are, dh isn't but his name is really normal and perfectly common (especially in our age group).
If we had given dd the more traditional spelling of her name then she wouldn't be top 100.

Sadie204 Sat 17-Aug-13 23:26:38

I'm at 172nd but would have thought a lot lower.
DH is 7th (which he hates lol)
DD1 and DS1 are both joint at 28th on each list!
DD2 is 722nd but I would have expected it to be more popular cos it's so pretty!

applepieinthesky Sat 17-Aug-13 22:58:39

DP is outside the top 1100
DS is outside top 400
My name is usually around the 3-400 mark

MultipleMama Fri 16-Aug-13 14:15:09

None of my dc are in top 100 neither I or DH. Saying that, my kids pretty unusual names.

nooka Fri 16-Aug-13 04:34:32

The short form of both my children's names are in the top ten, and have been for years (dd's name we knew would be popular, ds's name had a huge boom a year or two after he was born). Both ds's full name and dh's name come in around about 150. dd's full name (properly spelled) comes in at around 600 but I suspect if you added up the variety of spellings and all the double barreled versions then the short form could well be no1.

My name is not on the long list, and I'd be surprised if it ever had been to be honest.

We live in Canada now where the short form of dd's name is also very popular, but ds's name is pretty much unheard of (it gets spelled wrong, and we've been asked if he is a girl too)

phlebas Thu 15-Aug-13 22:10:02

neither dh nor any of our children are in the top 100 but I'm in the top 30 - which is amusing as dh's name was common when we were children but mine was practically unheard of!

Frikadellen Thu 15-Aug-13 22:07:41

dd1'sname is in top 30

mine is not on the lists
dhs' to my surprise is not in top 100 (not checked further)

dd2 is 1500 something
dd3 400 something
ds i forgot where but there was 9 boys named his name last year.

MabliD Thu 15-Aug-13 22:04:57

DD is in the 70s, not surprised as her name is old lady trendy - but she's named after family so popularity wasn't a consideration. There were 16 little mes, and 16 little DHs born last year! We are both more unusual spellings of common names from the 80s. Not trendy at all then!

bronya Thu 15-Aug-13 09:46:29

DS and I in top 20. DH not in top 100. Funny, cos my name was v unusual as a child!

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 14-Aug-13 06:04:26

None of us are , none of my name spelling born last year (it's not made up or unyoooosual either)

mathanxiety Wed 14-Aug-13 05:59:37

One DD is in the top 10 and has been for years. There are thousands and thousands of girls with her name. She is right in the thick of an epidemic of them. Nobody else is anywhere near the top 100.

Manchesterhistorygirl Tue 13-Aug-13 20:56:52

Both dc are n the top 100. Ds1 is his nn though not his Sunday name. Dh yes.

Me. No.

Happiestinwellybobs Tue 13-Aug-13 20:54:54

DD top 350
Me top 1250
DH top 500
The dog is top 20 grin

Bunbaker Tue 13-Aug-13 20:50:19

DD is in the top 20, was at no 1 a few years ago. Neither OH nor I are in the top 100.

siluria Tue 13-Aug-13 20:42:57

DD is 98th. But she's Isobel, so really she's probably in the top 3.

DD2, due in a week, is 32nd.

DH isn't in the top 100, even though his name is pretty common. Mine is nowhere to be seen, but I wouldn't expect it to be.

CormoranStrike Tue 13-Aug-13 20:32:47

DH is in the top 50, neither the kids nor I make it in the running at all.

BlueStarsAtNight Tue 13-Aug-13 20:15:56

DS and DH are between 50 and 100, I'm in the 200's.
