    UK Top Baby Names 2012/2013??

    To all the UK Nameberries -

    I've been wondering for a while why we don't get statistics like the US do on baby names. The last official list was in 2011 (which can be found here). I want to see more updated lists!

    Does anyone else feel my pain?

    We do get them. It used to be every ten years, but it's been annual since the mid 90's. The statistics are revealed in the Summer (August I believe). So you've just got to wait patiently for the list of awesomeness.

    How is that not like US statistics? If anything, I think ours are a little better. Perhaps I haven't explored the SSA website that thoroughly, but for E&W, you just download one Excel spreadsheet and you've got all names given to 3+ babies, the most popular names by month, most popular names by region and the changes in rank since the year before & since 10 years before. They're quite thorough and I find it so easy to find and sort things in Excel. And I'm such a nerd- I've got them saved to my computer for instant access The only downside is that there are no official combined statistics for the whole of the UK.

    We're also level pegging with the US for the minute- we've both got our 2011 statistics out now as the most recent data. The US are releasing their 2012 data in a few days and I believe we'll release our 2012 data later in the summer. Just have a little patience!


    EDIT: I spent so long typing that, Otter got there before me

    It will be published here. You can find some older sheets as well.

    C&P: I agree, ours rock! I love it, so much fun and easy to navigate through
