How do you find how many of your child's name have been named in a certain year? I've seen people say "Oh, my child's name is in the 6000's" etc. and I just (out of curiosity I guess) want to know how many other children were christened with my children's names in the years of their births smile Thanks!

I've found this before but I can't see on it how many births are registered with my baby's name for a certain year. It just seems to have the top 100 - I want to know exactly how many of less popular names were registered. Maybe I'm just being stupid, but I cant't see that here sad

The info is on the ONS site if you dig around a bit but try names.darkgreener.com/ it is a bit more user-friendly and you can see trends easily.

Those are the links for boys and girls for 2015. I find them difficult to search for on gov.uk. Doesn't go up to 6000 though.

Thank you so much! Both the dark greener.com and the files you sent PeachIcedT are just what I was looking for smile
