Most Popular Girls’ Names of 2013….so far
Imogen widened her lead over Charlotte as the most popular girls’ name on Nameberry for the first nine months of the year. Imogen edged past Charlotte to claim the Number 1 spot for the first time at the 2013 half year mark, leading by fewer than 500 names out of a cumulative 50,000 page views.
Though popular in Britain, Imogen has never made the U.S. Top 1000. In 2012, it was given to only 111 baby girls in the U.S., the same number as were named Love and Laken, though its popularity on Nameberry indicates it could squeak onto the Top 1000 for 2013 or 2014.
