If your wanting to steer clear of a fast moving girls name don’t choose one starting with A! six out of the nine top risers began with the first letter of the alphabet, maybe parents struggle to get through the a’s as they comprise! Annabelle jumped an amazing 42 to places to reach #51, while Scarlett made an impressive leap also of 29 to sit at #43. Ayla moved from the bottom to rest comfortably at 77, a rise of 23. Not far behind were Ashley up 20 and Alexis up 19. Summer followed suit jumping 18 to (34) and along came Aria up 16, Riley gaining 14 and Abigail skipping a dozen plus one.

Imogen after diving into the bottom of 2009, plummeted 44 places to 56th. Caitlin (#62) is finally on the way down losing 23 places as is her sister Kate dropping 15 to rest at #53, never mind theres still Katie holding at #54. Amy and Anna both fall 22 and 18 places but still sit within the top 70 just. Tessa loses 16 places and joins Matilda on a downward turn.

Leaving the top 100 are; Bailey, Brooklyn, Abby, Lauren, Alexandra, Anahera, Manaia, Madeline & Madeleine, Violet, Maria and Ariana.
