Top Girl Names 2011

newgirl

Nameberry’s top girl names 2011 is our definitive look at which girls’ names attracted the most views on our site this year.

Think of it as a predictor for which names parents will choose for their baby girls in the future, rather than what they named their daughters last year.

Once again, Charlotte is Nameberry’s #1 girls’ name, but Seraphina, jump-started by the daughter of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, has moved into second place above big sister’s name Violet.

New entries in the girls’ Top 10 are Scarlett and Lila, replacing Elizabeth and Eliza.

The Nameberry Top 10 rankings are very different from the national Social Security list, with not a single crossover on the girls’ list. In fact, for example, the nation’s seventh most popular name, Madison, is not even in Nameberry’s Top 100.

Tomorrow we’ll bring you the boys’ popularity list, which includes bigger news than on the girls’ list.  Plus this year, we’ve compiled a separate list of popular unisex names, which we’ll run on Thursday.  One note here: Unisex names Harper and Quinn were both very popular for girls, and so by some rights should be included high up on the girls’ top 100.

Be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list where we’re announcing a new contest: Can you guess which name was #101 on Nameberry in 2011 for both girls and boys?

Here, then, the Nameberry top girl names 2011.
