Featured name from the NZ top 100- 2009 BOYS

JACK

In NZ

Jack was #5 in 1999, for the years 2000-2004 he sat as runner up at place #2, in 2005 he hit number one overtaking Joshua.

In 2006 at #1 the most boys called Jack were born- 534, these four years old may be popping up in NZ kindy’s.

Since 2005 Jack has regained his spot at #1, although the number of Jack’s born has declined (345)  as parents are choosing  a wider selection of names.

Globally

Jack is #1 in Australia (2008), England & Wales (2009; 8,007), Scotland (2009) and Ireland (2009). It seems the USA is the only place not catching the Jack fever- it sits at #42 in 2009.
