As the title says popular is the name Ivy in your local area? How many Ivys do you know?

I don't know any, which is surprising, because similar sounding names like Evie, Ava and Isla are incredibly common where I am (east of England). I like Ivy a lot. Short, sweet but with some substance to it.

I know a toddler and a baby.

Statistically it is 33rd most popular name in 2016, 42nd in 2015 which is quite a leap.

I'm in the South East, I know 4 under 5.

For context I know more Ivy's than Amelia and Emily which are 2 and 3rd most popular

I know more Ivy’s than Olivia’s!

I also know more Ivys than Olivias. Always at least one Ivy at baby group x

I love the name ivy
Always been one of my favourites
I would love to use it if I ever have a girl but because we are from the south west 'ivy' in a Bristolian accent sounds awful 🙈 'ivay'
If I lived anywhere else I would use it haha

Statistically it’s popular, but I’ve never come across any and I have a DD in nursery and we go to quite a few toddler groups, etc.

BernardBlacksHangover Thu 09-Nov-17 19:39:59

I have only ever met two. Both are young toddlers.

17caterpillars1mouse Thu 09-Nov-17 19:41:47

I only know one Ivy. She's 3

AnyaMoondial Thu 09-Nov-17 19:44:54

I know one, she's about two months old.

Strange! It looks so familiar but havent come across it much. I have come across it with regard to education. The term "Ivy League Schools" - it includes some top schools from the world which are called Ivy League. So, that way I have come across the name Ivy.

ElephantAndBird Thu 09-Nov-17 19:53:03

There are loads round here. Every baby group has at least one. I think it’s overused and dull.

Ledkr Thu 09-Nov-17 19:59:03

It's dds second name

PandaCat Thu 09-Nov-17 20:03:48

I have never met an Ivy.

It was one of the fastest rising names in the UK over the last two years...

Where I live (Australia), it was number 14 in 2015 and number 16 in 2016, but more babies were born with the name in 2016.
