The Nameberry popularity lists track which names attracted the most views on our site this year. Consider them a predictor of which names parents will choose in the future, rather than which names they picked in the past.
As with the girls’ names, the Nameberry Top 10 rankings are very different from the national Social Security list, with not one crossover name for boys. Bentley, the fastest-rising boys’ name on the national popularity list, attracted a significant number of new views on Nameberry too.
Compared with last year’s Nameberry popularity list, the only new entrant in the boys’ Top 10 is, interestingly, classic James. Names rising fastest through the boys’ top 100 are marked in bright green below: note especially Silas, Emmett, Everett, Flynn, and Archer.
