I looked up Kidspot’s 2011 name data in order to see which names rose and fell the most, and as the list only covers the Top 50, I also consulted the national Top 100 for 2011 compiled by McCrindle Research. Although there were some differences in their methodologies (most notably McCrindle combined spellings for certain names), I thought it would be interesting to get at least an estimate for names which had risen far in the past year.

It may seem a bit controversial, but when I checked it against known numbers from Kidspot, it gave the same answer most of the time, and when it differed, it usually did so by only 1 or 2 places. So some of these may only be estimates, but I think they are reasonable estimates.
