Popularity of names in Spain, 2010s (so far)

Spain 2010s
Note: All the names provided on this post and on the PDFs are written exactly as it is shown in the original data (in other words, there are no diacritics).

Lucia and Daniel are the top baby names of the current decade so far and while Lucia is expected to remain in her position by the time the decade finished, with the recent movement upwards into first place, Hugo is expected to topple Daniel in becoming the boy name of the decade.

Here are the top 20 names of the 2010s so far. Regarding numbers, the total originates from the grand total of living persons with a specific name subtracted by the total of those born abroad – in this way, the baby name scene in Spain can be more accurately represented.
