Last year, I attempted to de-merge the names in the top 50. However, a few days ago, I happen to stumble upon an article on Vores Børn containing the de-marged top 100 from 2014 and a website called .. which displays the popularity of individual names from 1985 to 2015. However, a couple of names that are on the 2014 top 100 in Vores Børn are not included on that website, so I added them into the list because…let’s face it, I wouldn’t want to leave any name untouched. Anyway, the headline for this post is…
William stays in the throne while Emma is being thrown out by Ella.
William has been the top boy name for 6 years in a row while Ella is a newcomer to the throne.
Here are the top 10 de-merged names for both genders:
In the top 10, Valdemar, Agnes and Sofia replace Anton, Alexander, Olivia and Clara.
In the top 100, new entrants include Frej, Holger, Muhammad, Peter and Anker & Ellie, Vilma, Lily, Iben, Mynte, Mila, Lilly, replacing Lasse, Nikolaj, Thomas, Malik and Nicklas & Nicoline, Emmelie, Matilde, Mie, Julia, Melina, Jasmin, Nikoline, Thilde.
The biggest risers (excluding new entrants) in the top 100 are Sylvester and Viola (rank) & Nohr and Alma (number) while the biggest fallers are Jeppe and Dagmar (rank) & Mathias and Emma (number).
