SEE THE WINNERS BELOW!!!
The official list of U.S. Most Popular Names 2012 will be revealed later this week — Thursday afternoon or Friday morning, according to the Social Security press office — and so in advance of that announcement, we’re asking YOU to predict:
What do you think will be the Most Popular Names for 2012?
And if not, what WILL be Number 1 — and 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. and 10?
The first Berry to guess all Top 10 names for both sexes in correct order will win the gorgeous sterling silver and antiqued bronze double-charm necklace pictured here, soon to be offered exclusively in our Nameberry Store for $99, personalized with the names and/or dates of your choice. If no one guesses the exact Top 10s, we’ll decide who comes closest. Entries end at 11:59 PST TONIGHT, Wednesday, May 8.
With the new US popularity list due out in less than a month, we thought it would be fun to look at today’s most popular baby names and guess which similar choices might move in to replace them — if not at the next tally, then at some point in the future. Our picks:
Sophia – Sister names that might theoretically replace the gorgeous classic Sophia include her cuter, more irreverent French cousin Sophie, which has risen from obscurity over the past 30 years to reach Number 51, and Seraphina, which has never been in the Top 1000 but is finding favor thanks to its choice by Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck.
