It's sometime around now isn't it? I love poring through it. (Nerd alert!)

Choccyhobnob Thu 17-Aug-17 12:51:39

Me too! It is usually about the 15th August you're right.

Last year was late, 2nd September. Hoping it's sooner this year!

PeachIcedT Thu 17-Aug-17 16:10:06

It's due on the 20th September

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 18:01:29

Oh no, where has that date come from? I wonder why so late this year

PeachIcedT Thu 17-Aug-17 18:05:06

I know sadit's getting later each year

Shemozzle Thu 17-Aug-17 19:44:43

It definitely gets later every year!

Floellabella Thu 17-Aug-17 20:00:28

FFS! I was banking on seeing the list before naming my baby! angryconfused

GreengageJam Thu 17-Aug-17 20:20:04

Thanks Peach. Shame it's getting so late in the year.

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 20:43:47

Do you think it will have changed massively from 2015? (I hope you're all fellow name geeks😂)

Floellabella Thu 17-Aug-17 20:48:42

Yeah I think it will have, at least there will be notable movement of some names.

Damn it!

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 20:59:02

Do you think the 'unofficial' lists will be pretty much accurate? Such as babycentre?

Not in the slightest! Lots of those are based on pageviews, and people are much more likely to look at the page for a name than to actually use it for their child!

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 21:08:49

Oh interesting!! I'm desperate to see this list lol

GreengageJam Thu 17-Aug-17 21:10:01

I'm desperate too! Want to see if dd's name has gone up or down.

YokoReturns Thu 17-Aug-17 21:11:49

I think this will be the year Jack
and Isabel start to slide down, only to return to the upper reaches of the chart when we're all dead grin

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 21:17:34

I am trying to find the lists for the last few years and all I can find is the articles and facts relating to the lists? Where will I find just the top 100 written down?

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 21:18:12

Pretty sure DD has gone up sad

Awandinmypocket Thu 17-Aug-17 21:24:27

Found it after much confusion!lol

Shemozzle Sat 19-Aug-17 13:29:37

I use dark greener names to compare. I'm desperate to know if my 8 month olds name is still rising!

Imnotatypicalsausage Sat 19-Aug-17 15:36:10

Dark greener uses the ons data x

Shemozzle Sun 20-Aug-17 01:46:44

Yeah I know, but I look from there rather than downlod the entire ONS publication and to check differences from the previous year.

MommaGee Sun 20-Aug-17 02:00:22

Dark Greener only goes up to 2015. 273 other people used my sons name time year he was born. How cheeky

GabsIsntthathardtospell Sun 20-Aug-17 08:05:17

Argh! Why is it not til 20th Sept now?! That's too late for me to check before naming this DC!

Crumbelina Sun 20-Aug-17 08:17:05

Oh! I'm due to have DD by ELCS on the 19 September. Guess I could read through the list whilst in recovery. smile
