More success for the surname names, with Hunter, Hudson and Braxton the top three risers, and Mason also gaining. In Victoria, Isaac was the only Old Testament boy’s name to do really well; here he is joined by Noah, who rose 10 places to make #1 overall. Princes Harry and William have their royal names making headway, although once again, Henry did even better than Harry.
