    Post Adjusted SSA Name List

    I've been working on the adjusted Top 1000 Names based off the SSA list for a few days now.

    It's easier to get a feel for the actual popularity of a name when you condense the list by adding all of the spellings of a name together. Of course this list isn't entirely accurate because some spellings are so "creative" they don't make the list, and some names are just pronounced differently depending on the person (Elena and Alana - impossible to tell in writing) Those difficulties arise much deeper in the list though, as the more popular ones are obviously more mainstream and easier to know how to pronounce.

    I've put the adjusted top 20 below, and I think quite a few are interesting in just how popular they are (Zoey and Madelyn for instance!) I hope others find this interesting or perhaps helpful. I'm still working on the entire 1000 but I am deep enough into the list that the top 20 and 50 are unlikely to change.

    I've put the most popular spelling.

    1. Sophia
    2. Olivia
    3. Emma
    4. Isabella
    5. Ava
    6. Mia
    7. Emily
    8. Zoey
    9. Amelia
    10. Adelyn
    11. Abigail
    12. Madelyn
    13. Madison
    14. Aubrey
    15. Charlotte
    16. Chloe
    17. Riley
    18. Avery
    19. Evelyn
    20. Layla

    I did the same thing a few months back but have different results than you do, it'd be intersting to see which spelling variations you considered, do you have a list so I can compare?
    (Mine is here in case you're interested: https://www.docdroid.net/IRu1V62/top...lings.pdf.html)
    Rose Lavinia Charlotte & Edmund Nicanor Hugo
    Ada Beatrice Margot ‧ Alice Cordelia Mary ‧ Clara Elisabeth Margot ‧ Flora Elisabeth Maude
    Jane Wilhelmina Edith ‧ Elliott Victor Jack "Ottie/Otter" ‧ Henry Frederick Arthur

    Edith Matilda ‧ Emma Rosalind ‧ Mabel Augusta ‧ Margot Lavinia ‧ Violet Georgiana
    Edgar ‧ Eulàlia ‧ George ‧ Kit Laszlo ‧ Lydia ‧ Oscar ‧ Pip Enoch

    German Loves
    Ottilie Elisabeth Margot ‧ Flora Henriette Alice ‧ Flora Charlotte Alice

    No problem, I'm still working on the entire list, but the spellings I used to reach the top 20 are:

    1. Sophia, Sofia 26,977
    2. Olivia, Alivia 21,068
    3. Emma 20,355
    4. Isabella, Isabela, Izabella 17,272
    5. Ava, Avah 16,717
    6. Mia, Miah 15,287
    7. Emily, Emely, Emmaleigh, Emilee, Emilie 13,561
    8. Zoey, Zoie, Zoe 13,262
    9. Amelia, Emelia, Emilia 12,504
    10. Adelyn, Adelynn, Adeline, Adaline, Adilynn, Addilyn, Adalynn 12,476
    11. Abigail 12,311
    12. Madelyn, Madeline, Madeleine, Madalyn, Madalynn, Madilyn, Madilynn 12,205
    13. Madison, Madyson, Madisyn, Maddison 12,093
    14. Aubrey, Aubree, Aubrie 11,650
    15. Charlotte 11,332
    16. Chloe, Khloe 10,869
    17. Riley, Rylee, Ryleigh, Rylie 10,862
    18. Avery, Averie, Averi 10,535
    19. Evelyn, Evelynn, Evalyn 10,345
    20. Layla, Laylah, Laila, Lailah, Leila 10,277

    I seem to have done more spelling variations than your list, which is probably why it differs. Once I am finished with the entire list I'll post a detailed link.
