The hottest undiscovered boys names start with V

No V boy names grace the halls of the NZ top 100 2012, the same goes for Australia & England,

In the USA none feature in the 2011, top 100- although Vincent misses at #101.

Valentino- An Italian surname with Latin roots meaning strength and health- strong but with the quirky o ending and easy slip off the tongue nickname Tino- this one is waiting to be brushed off. (USA #761)

Van- in NZ a character in the much loved Outrageous fortune, a Dutch forename meaning “of or from” or used as a nickname for Ivan or Vance.  A short stand alone gem that would slip in with  Max, Leo, Eli, Zac and Nate. (USA #787)

Vaughn- Welsh meaning little. A similar feel to Cooper, Austin, Kingston and Lincoln.  (USA #903)

Vega- Arabic, could this name fit your brightest star? ”swooping eagle” is another plus.

Venn- a bit more unique meaning handsome/fair, with a slightly older feel but the double n like Finn, Flynn & Quinn.

Viggo- this name is of Scandinavian descent, it means war and is derived from Old Norse names containing the element Vig.

Vincent- Vince Vaughn anyone :), Widely used by the English, French, Dutch, Danish and Swedish- ultimately from Roman name Vincentius meaning “to conquer”.

Vito- “alive” in Latin last featured in the USA top 100 in 1986 at 1000.

Baby Boom predicted if All Blacks Win, 15 hottest names!

After the 1987 world cup win to the All Blacks there was a brief spike in the number of babies born, if the All Blacks are successfull tonight the prediction is the same will follow!

“Figures released to the Otago Daily Times from Statistics NZ show that during March 1988 there were 4822 births, almost 400 births more than in February and April (1)”

“Prominent All Blacks also appear to be influencing the names of boys born around each tournament, with distinctive names such as Taine (1999-2000), Carlos (2003) and Carter (2007-08) appearing in the top 100 New Zealand boys’ names (1)”

I have selected 15 names from the All Blacks which I think are attractive to those wanting to honor all All Black 2011.

*Benson (Stanley)

*Conrad (Smith)

*Ellis (Andrew)

*Israel (Dagg)

*Jimmy (Cowan)

*Kahui (Richard)

* Kaino (Jerome)

*Muliaina (Malili)

*Nonu (Ma’a)

*Piri (Weepu)

*Ranger (Rene)

*Read (Kieran)

*Slade (Colin)

*Sonny (Bill Williams)

*Thorn (Brad)

* Vito  (Victor)
