Baby name popularity lists

By Linda Rosenkrantz

We kind of take it for granted that our Berries are ahead of the curve when it comes to name trends and choices.  And now, looking for some hard evidence via the latest Social Security list versus Nameberry’s own popularity list, we can see just what a great disparity there is. As in Number One Noah and Emma (on the official US list) vs Atticus and Charlotte (Nameberry’s top names).

So what are some of the other sharpest, most extreme, differences? Scanning the 20 most popular names on Nameberry, some of which were barely on the general public radar a few years ago, here’s what we see:
