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

Names OUTSIDE the Top 100, where can I find them??

Hi all, I'm due in January and don't want a name that's too popular (PFB emoticon).
I seem to remember someone posting a link a while ago with the top 500 names in the UK and thought it may be available with yesterdays ONS list.
However, I can't find anything except top 100, does anyone have a link?? (There was one for Scotland)

Bumping for you as I too would be interested in such a list.

The US produces a list of the top 500 names - there must be a UK equivalent.

Don't think there is an official one yet other than top 100 for 2008.

Scotland have number of forenames


Here are some top 300s from previous years

jellybeans, that Scottish link is great - it's helpful to see not only the rankings of names, but also how many boys/girls were given a certain name.

My ds's name was only given to one boy in all of Scotland last year! And my dd's 13 times.

It would be great to have this information for England.
