Francesco and Sofia are, once again, in the lead for the Italian baby name charts last year, Sofia leading the way for the girls for the 6th year in a row and Francesco leading the way for the boys for the 15th year in a row.
Here’s what the top 10 looks like for last year:
There’s no change for the boys, however, for the girls, Anna replaces Sara in the top 10.
In the top 200, Jonas, Amedeo, Ayoub, Noel, Elio, Ayman, Arturo, Eros, Yassine, Eduard, Ernesto and Imran & Nour, Aurora Maria, Ariel, Delia, Jannat, Daria, Amanda, Elettra and Grazia replace Kristian, Bilal, Renato, Saad, Agostino, Eric, Felice, Joshua, Walid, Ali, Tobia and Yassin & Alexandra, Adriana, Francesca Pia, Monica, Maria Sole, Myriam and Helena.
In a tweet that I put out a fortnight ago, I’ve put out a couple of names that were worth keeping an eye on when ISTAT would end up releasing the 2015 data. Let’s see how they performed:
- Gioia – rose by 1 place to 33rd, rose by 87 counts to 1,574 births
- Adele – rose by 2 places to 34th, rose by 146 counts to 1,520 births
- Cloe – rose by 2 places to 82nd, rose by 6 counts to 480 births
- Chloe – rose by 10 places to 72nd, rose by 65 counts to 558 births
- Santiago – rose by 8 places to 90th, rose by 42 counts to 371 births
