Top 100 Girl Names of 2014
Imogen may still not have cracked the US Top 1000, but she continues her reign as the Number 1 girls’ name on Nameberry for 2014.
The real news with girls’ names, though, is Khaleesi, which vaulted to Number 2 on our list thanks to Game of Thrones. Given that Nameberry’s popularity list is based on which names parents are searching versus actually bestowing upon their babies, it makes sense that Khaleesi would attract this level of curiosity. The girls’ name Daenerys is another Game of Thrones choice that jumped onto the Top 100.
The other new entrant to the girls’ Top 10 compared with 2013 is Hazel, up from 20th place thanks to its starring role in Fault in our Stars.
The three names moving furthest up the Top 100 are Ellie, up 42 places, Cordelia up 37 and Maya up 28. Other names moving up furthest include Adeline plus four choices that being with the stylish letter L: Lucy, Lila, Louisa, and Luna.
The Nameberry popularity list is based on which names attracted the most views of the nearly 50 million views of our name pages in 2014.
