The Baby Name Wizard- Laura Wattenberg

Rarely Used list of Girls (2005) only 3 have entered the top 100. Are names really slow to enter and creep or do they suddenly appear at like 600?

Aeron, Aine, Allegra, Amity, Arabella, Ariadne, Artemisia, Aviva, Avril, Beatrix, Britt, Calla, Caprice, Cassia, Cecily, Daria, Dimitra, Donatella, Eleni, Ellery, Elodie, Emeline, Emlyn, Esme, Fifi, Finola, Gaia, Gemma, Hadassah,Hermione, Hollis, Honor, Isadora, Jemima, Junia, Kateri, Kiki, Lark, Lavender, Lilias, Linden, Lyra, Maisie, Mattea, Mehitabel, Melia, Mercy, Niamh, Olympia, Orly, Pippa, Romy, Shenandoah, Shoshana, Stefania, Tamsin, Tayla, Thomasina, Tilda, Topaz, Tova, Vashti, Venice, Verity, Zilla.

Arabella 2005- 795, 2006- 649, 2007- 648 2009-657

Gemma 2008- 888

Hadassah 2007- 996, 2008-988

and the SSA website has gone down for me so I can’t find the rankings for Tayla for the last 5 years?

Twilight names!!

Just finished Breaking Dawn last night, I loved them so much, I’m going to start Twilight again, the movie was pretty sucky though hope the next one is better, heard the budget was increased!

Anyway we all know the main two characters, Isabella Swan & Edward Cullen all plasuible first names 🙂 Cullen is the last name of an all black Christian Cullen and hubby just told me its a name of a horse too, Swan could make an interesting first name perhaps should be left as gp (guilty pleasure)

In NZ Isabella sits at 4 in 2008, 10 in 2007, 11 in 2006, 10 in 2005 & 10 in 2004, suspect her popularity won’t be affected what about Bella? Bella sits at 43 in 2008, 47 in 2007, 82 in 2006 so Bella is already on the rise, I suspect she may climb higher what do you think?

In NZ Edward sits at 81 in 2008, 2007 not in top 100, 2006 94, 2005 snuck in at 99 and 2004 not in top 100. I predict Edward will climb into the top 50 for 2009.

Alice (91 in 2008 NZ)  & Jasper predict both will rise, Jasper enter top 100

Rosalie (nn Rose) & Emmett love to see Rose/Rosalie enter top 100,

Esme & Carlisle Love to see Esme enter top 100, not sure if Carlisle appeals

Renesmee (dont’ see this one jumping the charts in a hurry)

Also Charlie (Bella Dad), Renee (Mum) & Phil (step-dad) Renee & Phil,

seem dated to me, Charlie (29 in 2008 NZ)

Jacob (12 in 2008 NZ)

Name for today-Esme

Origin of the name Esme:

Derived from the French esmé (loved), the past participle of the verb esmer (to love). Alternatively, some believe the name to be a variant of Aimé (beloved).
