Think you've decided on a name? Check out where it ranks on the official list of the most popular baby names first.

Do you think there would be a big difference in the top 100 baby name lists if they were split into first child and subsequent children?

I was wondering this, what do you think? Is there a difference between names of first born and names of younger siblings?

DDont think so both of my dcs have what I would call 'unusual names' but my SIL's kids , her first is REALLY RELLY popular, her second is not uncommon and her third is not as popular again.

I was wondering if perhaps parents thought so much more about the first, or perhaps were more likely to choose family names for a first child?

I guess people will use their favourite name for their first child of each sex. Don't know whether that would make it more or less unusual though...
