Earlier McCrindle had Isaac at number 10, looks like I’ll have to explain to mum that Isaac’s name isn’t as popular as I told her it was, because him having a top 10 name did seem to bother her (even though my brother is 12 and all the Isaac’s I know are his age (there’s two others in one of his classes) and older). Surprised to see Olive loosing out so quickly and Mackenzie gaining again.
Reading the report it mentions Bronte, Avalon, Brighton and Arcadia all gaining in popularity I wish they released these figures since I can buy Bronte rising (I know at least 6) but Brighton and Arcadia? It also mentions Adelaide being out of the top 100 as far as I can find Adelaide’s never been in the top 100
Yes not quite sure where #10 came from – Isaac is still gently rising though, having gone up a few places. Baby Center has Isaac at #10 though.
I’ve never seen a Top 100 with Adelaide in it (maybe in the 19th century?), and sometimes I think McCrindle’s analysis is tinged with fantasy. I can see all those beachy names rising, although I’ve only ever seen boys named Brighton. I think perhaps they just mentioned other place names that were used at all.
They also had Zoe in the top 10 earlier, since Zoe’s dropping I didn’t think that sounded quite right. I can’t imagine Brighton being common at all. I checked the NSW data for Adelaide and it peaked there in 2010.
