The next hottest NEW ZEALAND girls name could be…

The hot girls names in NZ fall into two patterns.

Three or four letter names ending in a with;

either  double letters ie two a’s or two m’s  (1)

or a “luh” sound (2)

or both (3)

or a spelling variation (ie Maia to Mia)

******************************************************

Previous contesters

Maia (1) was the first hot name to hit NZ by storm that I remember along with her sisters Mia and the less common Maya. Maia’s highest placing was #15 in 2005 but she sure seemed more popular!  Mia still currently sits at #14 the more preferred spelling perhaps?

Emma (1) was number #1 in 2003,  2004 & 2005 and currently sitting #13 the teen’s is where all the hot names sit

 Ava #10,  Isla #12, Emma #13 and Mia #14

Ella (3) her year of Queen was 2007,  she was #3 and #4 in 2004 & 2005 respectively. Ella still sits within the top 10 at number #7 perhaps testament to her appeal as a (3).

Ava (1) First entered the top 100 in 2003 at #93 she made a huge leap of 43 places in just one year! Ava was #50 in 2004.  She hovered for a year before climbing to #26 (2005) and then #18 (2006), still hot Ava stayed within the top 20 for four years before entering the top 10 at #10 in 2012 for the first time!

Isla (2) Suddenly everyone was talking about Isla the sweetest undiscovered name until… She entered in 2004 at #92,  up to #88 the next year and like Ava a huge jump up to #47 in 2006.  Isla suffered a small fall in 2007 before climbing  to #30 in 2008.  Just one year later she broke the top 20 at #18. Isla is hovered outside the top 10 for the last two years at 13 and 12. Will she break into the top 10 for 2013?

Mila (2) This slavic diminutive entered in 2010 at #84. She jumped a huge 53 places to #31 in 2011. Seems like the hottest names are only getting hotter as New Zealand parents look for that special name! In 2012 Mila was #24, I wonder will she break the inside the top 20 for 2013.

Is Ayla the next hottest girls name? Shes a 3 like Ella sharing both double sounds and the “luh” magic 🙂 she also seems trendy with her y! She entered in 2008 at #97, just made it in 2009,  made a 20 point leap to #77 in 2010, up 1 in 2011 and sitting at #74 in 2012, only time will tell!

or could it be Lola hovering in the late 80’s/9o’s who is is also a 3?

*****************

Here are some choices that are undiscovered but possess the formula to become a hottest name 🙂

1. Etta, Vada, Aura, Aja, Ara, Alba, Asha, Taja.

2. Nola, Zola, Orla, Eula, Ilja. 

3. Lula, Lila, Nala, Ebba, Zala.
