How popular are YOUR favourite names?
For those who know or are willing to spend some time looking into it. Namely popularity in whatever country you live, but if you can't find out and/or would like to give comparatives from others, feel free! I'm just curious as to how much people might factor popularity into their choices, inspired by a similar question which didn't ask for figures.

Most names I really like and could possible use in a German speaking country are somewhat popular (top 100, at least for the girls names). Elina for example is #64 with (113 babies named Elina in 2013), Helene is #77 (90 babies named Helene in 2013), Zoe is #86 (84 babies named Zoe in 2013). Holly does not appear on the list at all which means that less than 5 babies were named Holly last year - yay
Also Finley (boys name) doesn't appear on the list. Colin/Collin are #167/#414, Cooper doesn't appear at all.23-year old name nerd/addict living in Austria
Not pregnant or TTC, just collecting names for later.
Top 5 Boys: Brady | Lyon | Cooper | Iven | Finley
Top 5 Girls: Elina | Loey | Holly | Junia | Zoe

Rankings are from this list: http://www.britishbabynames.com/blog...ales-2013.html
Margot (#725), Helena (#339), Beatrix (#247), Dorothy (#397) and Ramona (not in top 1000).
Arthur (#43), Edmund (#837), Rupert (#213), Dashiell (not in top 1000) and Calvin (#447).
I usually try and stay outside the top 100, but Arthur is a family name and long-time love, so I made an exception!~ ♥ ~ sophie ~ ♥ ~

Canada doesnt do anything beyond a top 100; and it isnt an official, government released top 100, but I do know the E&W rankings, so I'll go for those.
