Popularity Prediction Contest: Guess the new Top 10! And now see the winners!

The official list of U.S. Most Popular Names of 2013 will be released by the Social Security Administration any day now, and so in advance of the announcement, which we’re all awaiting with baited breath, we’re asking you to predict which names will come out on top.

Will Jacob‘s 14-year reign finally end?  Will  Sophia and Isabella continue to play tag, or will there be a new Most Popular girl and boy in town? And if so, who do you think it will it be?

What about the rest of the  Top 10?  How do you see the order shifting?  Which names will fall off or leap onto the Top 10 for girls and boys? (For a full list of 2012 Top 1000, see our Popular Names page.) There will be a prize (see below) for the first person to guess correctly the Top 10 girls and Top 10 boys in the correct order.

As a reminder, here were the leading names last year:

1 Jacob Sophia
2 Mason Emma
3 Ethan Isabella
4 Noah Olivia
5 William Ava
6 Liam Emily
7 Jayden Abigail
8 Michael Mia
9 Alexander Madison
10 Aiden Elizabeth

And if you like, you might go beyond the Top 10s and make some further predictions, like new names on  the Top 1000, names making the biggest leap up the national charts…

As a further inducement, we’re giving away a charming personalized baby bunting, one of the most popular items in the Nameberry Store and a great accessory for your child’s room.

If no one guesses the correct Top 10s, we’ll pick the person who in our opinion comes closest.

***********************************

FLASH!!!

THE CONTEST RESULTS ARE IN AND WE HAVE TWO WINNERS!

It’s a tie! We have two winners who came closest to predicting the Top 20 names for 2013, and they are (drum roll!):

Orchid_Lover! and townsend2787

…who will each get a personalized, multi-patterned fabric banner from our store.

They both guessed 19 of the 20 names correctly, and though not in the exact order, they were pretty close (darn that Chloe and Aiden!).

It was a tough year for prognosticating, the main stumbling blocks being Noah and Liam’s surprise jumps into first and second place.  (Hats off also to luluemonmee—the only entrant who predicted Noah at the top!) The vast majority of boy votes went to Mason at Number 1.

Among the girls, Ella, Lily, Chloe and Charlotte were the biggest wannabees not to make it, and for the boys, the aforementioned Aiden, plus Elijah and James.

So congrats to the winners, and thank you all so much for participating!

For the girls, I definitely think Ella will crack the top 10, but I’m not fully sure who she will replace, so I guessed.

At least this is what I hope. I love Sophia, it’s beautiful, but it’s so overused that every time I hear it I cringe.

I think Emma will reclaim the throne, I don’t think any new names will take the number one other than what’s already in the top 10. As for boys I hope to God that Jacob isn’t still number 1. It’s exhausting at this point!

1. Sophia – Jacob
2. Isabella – Mason
3. Emma – Noah
4. Olivia – Liam
5. Ava – Ethan
6. Mia – William
7. Abigail – Michael
8. Emily – Jayden
9. Ella – Alexander
10. Charlotte – Elijah

This was rather difficult to choose, but also a very fun idea. My only sure guess is that the girls’ top 10 will change more than the boys’ will, as per usual.

I think Amelia, Lily, and Aria will definitely continue to rise for girls, and Jackson, Carter, and Oliver will probably end up at least a little higher on the list this year. The only reason that I don’t think Lily will be in the top 10 is because of the number of variations. (Lily, Lilly, Lillian, etc.)

Oh my goodness, what a great contest! Thank you, Nameberry! This is incredibly tough, especially since it seems everyone I know have given babies kreatif names with lots of Ys. Alas, here are my guesses:

GIRLS:
1. Sophia
2. Emma
3. Harper
4. Charlotte
5. Isabella
6. Elizabeth
7. Ava
8. Olivia
9. Aubrey
10. Nora

BOYS:
1. Jack
2. Jacob
3. Mason
4. Liam
5. Carter
6. Owen
7. Noah
8. William
9. Henry
10. Lucas

I probably took a big risk by picking Jack as #1, but I swear, all the yuppies I know are naming their sons Jack! If it is not top of the list in 2013, I think it will be in 2014. The same goes for Harper and Charlotte. They’re on fire!

top 1000: I think Wren, Sutton, Mabel, Margot, Emmeline, Louisa, Louise, Freya, Poppy and Tallulah might all crack the top 1000 for girls!

Mason

Noah

Liam
William
Jayden
Alexander
Michael
Aiden

I don’t think the top ten will change much, but I think Charlotte will either crack the top ten or come very close. Ella might rise a bit. I think Madison will drop. I think Michael will still be top ten, but down a spot or two in rank.

Honestly, with the exception of Jayden and Madison, I think the current top ten names are pretty fabulous.

This might be the year Elizabeth falls out of the Top 10. I’m certain Harper, Lily, and Avery will make it in her place.

My 2013 prediction
Change in rank in brackets:

1 (+2) Ethan (0) Sophia
2 (0) Mason (0) Emma
3 (-2) Jacob (+1) Olivia
4 (+1) Liam (+1) Ava
5 (-1) Noah (-2) Isabella
6 (-1) William (+2) Mia
7 (+1) Michael (-1) Emily
8 (+1) Alexander (-1) Abigail
9 (+4) James (+1) Elizabeth
10 (+2) Matthew (+3) Avery

Took me a while, but this is what I narrowed it down to. Ethan’s been rising pretty fast, so I think he’ll take no 1 but I think Sophia will hang in there. I had Jayden and Aiden drop off the list – I think ‘Ay’ names are beginning to sound a bit faddish even to the general populace – but I brought up Matthew and James, two rising classic names. With the girls the only drop off was Madison, which I replaced with the fast rising Avery. There were a couple shuffle rounds to accommodate slight shifts, but I’m pretty happy with what I came up with.

Other Predictions:

If Avery fails, Aubrey is my next choice of girls name to hit the top ten – if not this year then the next, definitely. I’m confident that Harper will breach at least the top 20, probably even the top 15. And I’m certain Skylar and Aria will break the top 50. I also have pretty high hopes for Ivy and Paisley, who shot up last year.

With the boys, I’m fairly confident of fast risers like Jace, Jaxon and Damien breaching the top 50, though I have to say I’m not looking forward to it. Henry and Eli are my main hopefuls for next years top 10/15, and Hudson is my next hopeful for the top 50, though currently at 93.

In conclusion: I think more ‘fad’ names like Jayden and Madison are going to see a drop, being replaced with re-rising classics like James and Aubrey.

That’s what I get for copying and pasting last year’s list on my phone.

Anyway, I expect Jackson is still rising. I’ve known multiple women who have staked a claim on that name not realizing how popular it really is. I’ve also met a ton of Hadleys and Harpers recently. I don’t know that many kids, if I know three little people with any one name it seems like a lot. I’m not sure if either have reached the top 10 but I think they will eventually.

The boys list looks to have more minor switcharoos than the girls. The #10 spot on the girls list is the most difficult to predict, as Chloe, Avery, Aubrey, or even Charlotte have a shot at taking down Elizabeth. That suggests that (hopefully) in the next few years we’ll more names actually entering and leaving the top 10 girls list. But for this year, I have to predict few changes for either list:

1. Sophia (22000) and Mason (18100)
2. Emma (21800) and Jacob (18000)
3. Isabella (18200) and Ethan (17000)
4. Olivia (17000) and Liam (17000–the biggest wildcard of the boys)
5. Ava (14500) and Noah (16800)
6. Emily (12800) and William (16500)
7. Mia (12400) and Jayden (15600)
8. Abigail (12000) and Michael (15500)
9. Madison (10800) and Alexander (14500)
10. Elizabeth (9500) and Aiden (14300)

Oh, and I think Aria will gain several spots yet again. I hope we’ll see a bump in Florence and perhaps other F names like Felicity and Flora.

6. Alexander
7. Michael
8. Ethan

I don’t actually hear many Madison babies anymore so I assume that name is going to fall out.

Boys
1. Mason
2. Jacob
3. Noah
4. Liam
5. Ethan
6. William
7. Alexander
8. Elijah
9. Michael
10. Daniel

I really seem to hear more Mason’s than I do Jacob’s these days. I think a lot of people are done with the -aiden trend that’s been going around for years or at least done enough to knock Jayden and Aiden from the top 10.

I expect to see George, Francis/Frances, and Amelia rising in 2013 and 14.

Well, I’m posting this after the lists were released so not expecting anything. But my girls’ list prediction made several months ago:
1) Sophia
2) Emma
3) Olivia
4) Isabella
5) Ava
6) Mia
7) Emily
8) Abigail
9) Madison or Avery
10) Avery or Aubrey

Nine out of ten. Not too bad.
