Popularity of names in Denmark, 2014

Denmark 2014

Last week, Danmarks Statistik released the top 50 names given to babies last year.

Since the names in the top 50 are merged from various amounts of spellings and the most popular spelling is chosen, I decided to take it upon myself to compile the data using its name ‘barometer’ to see what the top 10 of these names are (showing the variant spellings in the first table that I found, though I couldn’t be able to find a couple of variants on a few names) and the top 50 of these names which include variant spellings and names that were in the top 50 before 2014 (though I might miss a couple of names out).
