Tens of thousands participated in Hippo Blue’s National Name Day Celebration (11 April – 8 May 2016). The number of participants is more than robust enough to give us a very good idea of what names are trending now.
You might see a difference from the Baby Name data reported by other publishers. Whereas other publishers’ reports are based on babies born in that one year, our count is based on children of varying ages (usually up to 10 years old). This makes it interesting because it captures not just names that are trending in that one year, but names that stand the test of time.
