The new Nameberry message boards are up and running! Check them out and tell us what you think!

Last week we brought you our hottest baby names of 2011: Those choices, from Pippa to Asher to Arlo and Adelaide, that were gaining the most views on Nameberry in the first half of this year.

Now we bring you our full list of Top Names 2011, the 100 most popular for girls and boys as well as the 25 most-searched unisex names, based on Nameberry’s figures for the first six months of the year.
