Featured name from the NZ top 100 (2009)


Sophie has been present in the top 100 since 1999 where she was sitting at number #9. In 2003 she dropped back to #6 then climbed to  #3 in 2006, #2 in 2001 and lucky number #1 in 2008 & 2009. Will 2010 see her hit number one again or after a decade of sitting in the top ten will it slowly start to fall but still  remain a classic NZ favourite like Olivia, Isabella, Emily, Emma and fish n chips….

Sophie is popular around the world too, New Zealand is not the only country you are bound to hear Sophie being called out in public places. It is number one in Ireland & Scotland too for 2009. It makes the top three in the Netherlands #2, England #3 in 2009. Sophie is #65 in the USA, it entered in 2000 #160 and has risen steadily, jumping from #122 in 2006 to #82 in 2007, in contrast Sophia is #4.

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)
