GIRLS’ NAMES 2011: The Secret Popularity List
GIRLS’ NAMES 2011: The Secret Popularity List
Apr 19, 2024 5:46 AM

  You may know Nameberry’s most popular girls’ names 2011: from Top 3 Charlotte, Violet, and Amelia down to Molly, Maya, and Mary.

  You may even know our hottest girls’ names 2011, which include such celebrity-influenced picks as Pippa and Mila.

  But we’ve got a quieter, less obvious, but potentially more interesting list for you: those girls’ names that don’t make the Top 100 but that are attracting a dramatic rise in interest this summer over last.

  Some of the names here bear a relationship to those on the most popular list: Aveline instead of Adeline, for instance, or Indigo rather than Scarlett, or Clover as opposed to Ivy or Poppy. While not all of these names are destined for future popularity, the baby namer in search of a name that will feel as fresh in ten years as it does today should take heed.
