I don't know how to make it link better? It's easy to find if googled btw. Sorry I'm rubbish at this sort of thing but it's a good read.

Love this.

DD's name is there <sigh>

I really hope her name doesn't become too popular. I'd adore it even if it was top 10 but part of the appeal was that it isn't popular.

It's soooo hard with girls names to avoid the rising ones or the past it names though. Popular girls names change so much over the decades and are influenced by fashion way more than boys names.

My eldest dd is there but as she's nearly 12 I was clearly ahead of the trendwink still hope name doesn't become really popular as I do feel the charm/freshness of a name is lost when you're over run with them.

It's amazing to think that a decade ago Isla only just hit the top 100 and now it's the 3rd most popular name.

My dd's name is also on there.... hope it doesn't rise too much higer (sigh)!

At least we can't say we're not warned about which names are rising quickly..!

My DDs name is rising on there. Really thought we'd picked an unusual marmite name. It's important to me not to have popular name. But hey ho it really suits her
