BabyCenter's Top 100 Names Of 2006 Sound Pretty Familiar

But then, I guess that's the working definition for a List of Most Popular Names.

Clear trends:

  • The old-fashioned girly thing [Hannah, Isabella, Emma, Olivia, Abigail, Ava, et al.]
  • The Ethan/Ryan/Joshua/Jack are the new Michael/John/Matthew/Robert thing, and
  • The awesome power of the Aiden, Caden, Jayden, Brayden, Hayden juggernaut thing.

    Are more than half of your shortlist names on here?

    Top 100 Names of 2006 [babycenter via fimoculous' classic year-end list of lists]


    I am again amused by BabyCenter's annual whitebread survey of names. Not one hispanic name appears on the list, which is indicative of the waspy (and extraordinarily boring and sheeplike) choices of the "370,000 BabyCenter members". But maybe I'm just being peevish.

    [or you just live in a different country, one that actually has people of different cultures in it. -ed.]

    Probably right, Greg. I'm a Californian; different cultures and generally peevish.
