czpl2016

Time for another ‘Double Whammy’ post where, this time, we head to the Czech Republic, where Jakub and Eliška rule the charts once again, and Poland, where Zuzanna leads for the second time, but Jakub is being pushed out by Antoni.

First, let’s take a look at the Czech top 10:

8 SOFIE 1,238 -1 10
9 KAROLÍNA 1,187 -1 -9

BOYS

1 JAKUB 2,756 0 -119
2 JAN 2,426 0 -103
3 ADAM 2,020 0 9
4 TOMÁŠ 1,843 0 -87
5 MATYÁŠ 1,727 0 -113

7 ONDŘEJ 1,575 1 -29
8 VOJTĚCH 1,569 3 67
9 MATĚJ 1,553 -2 -64
10 DAVID 1,532 -1 -5

Using the updated data, in the top 10, Kristýna and Vojtěch replace Nela (now in 13th place, would have been in 10th for those born in 2015) and Lukáš (now in 11th, would have been in 10th for those born in 2015). In the top 100, new entrants include Elizabeth, Evelína, Sofia, Lea, Bartoloměj, Artur, Sebastien, Libor and Andrej, replacing Valérie, Pavlína, Dorota, Jolana, Dalibor, Maxmilian and Luboš. The biggest risers and fallers in the top 100 (excluding the top 10 and new entrants) are as follows:

  • Risers – Stella, Stela and Diana and Alexandr, Kristian and Maxmilián (rank), Emma, Rozálie and Stella and Mikuláš, Antonín and Tobiáš (numbers)
  • Fallers – Monika, Nicol and Terezie and Mathias, Oskar and Vilém (rank), Nela, Nikola and Klára and Daniel, Petr and Lukáš (numbers)

Looking at names outside of the top 100, the following names are those I predict could enter the top 100 in 2017, based on the rate of increase and (in some cases) the consistency of the increase throughout the years since 2000:

THEA

ZORA BENEDIKT

MAT(T)EO

Now, let’s take a look at Poland and their top 10 names:
