    The Real Top Names?

    So I'm bored and procrastinating. I added up the combined spellings of some of the top names and boy does it change things! In particular if popularity bothers you...

    Sophia/Sofia/Sophie/Sofie still holds on to her top spot... 34,709 births... JEEZ!

    Isabelle and her friends (Isabel, Izabelle, Isabella, etc) is #2 w/ 23,625

    Emily (Emely,Emilee,Emmalee,Emilie) would be # 5

    Zoe/Zoey/Zoie would be 7. (My future daughter is going to have a lot of same-named friends!)

    Chloe/Khloe would be 8

    Madison/Maddison/Madisyn/Madyson (really, my fellow Americans, REALLY.... must we butcher this name?) is still 9

    Lily/Lilly/Lillie/Lilyana shoots up to 11

    Madelyn/Madeline/Madilyn/Madeleine/Madelynn/Madalyn/Madilynn/Madalynn (*facepalm*) goes from 67 to 13

    Addison/Addyson/Addisyn would be 14

    Riley/Rylee/Ryleigh/Rylie would be 15

    Elizabeth/Elisabeth drops to 16

    Aubrey/Aubrie/Aubri #17

    Avery/Averie/Averi #18

    Amelia/Emilia #20 (I know this is technically cheating, as they are different names, but they sound so similar, I had to do it)

    Kaitlyn/Katelyn/Caitlyn/Caitlin/Katelynn/Kaitlynn/Kaitlin #21

    Adalyn/Adelyn/Adeline/Adalynn/Adelynn/Adelina goes from 198 (Adalyn) to 30

    Annabelle/Annabella/Anabelle/Annabel/Anabella/Anabel/Annabell goes from 100 (Annabelle) to 31

    I'm sure my math is off, but I think it's pretty close. The Addison/Madison Madelyn/Adalyn spelling catastrophes are a little scary and spelling Zoey with a y ticks me off (sorry all Zoeys out there).

    Oh, SSA baby name list fun!

    My neighbor has a Madisyn, I really had a hard time writing it on her 1st birthday gift. Horrible!

    I'm happy that Anabel is so popular though. I think it's a beautiful name, but the spelling variations would irritate me.
    Top Names: Benedict Calvin & Noelle Geneva
    Olivia/Livy : Darah/Bethel : Eve/Verity
    Eli/Solomon : Luke/Zane: Levi/Phineas
    Due in January!

    Sarah at For Real Baby Names used to do the top 100 with combined spellings. I'm not sure if she still does.

    For the boys the rhymes-with-Aidan names are always at the top.
