I’d cheated my way into using BabyCenter data to choose 6 names from pop culture that would most likely rise in 2016, now I cheat my way into using BabyCenter data to choose half of that number of names, names that rose significantly last year, but would continue rising this year.
NOTE: AS SHOWN IN THE ORIGINAL DATA FROM THE SOURCE BELOW, THE NAMES SHOWN HERE DOESN’T INCLUDE ANY DIACRITICS. Martin stays at the top in Galicia, while Noa, the top girl name for 3 years, has now been knocked out by Sofia.
