Popular Names For Babies, Boys And Girls

Good Names For Boys And Girls.

An interesting discussion in most homes with new born babies is the name selection. This can become a serious ritual as parents try to find good names for boys and girls. Most popular names for guys and girls have some historic or religious background. This is very true at least for the top 10 names for boys and girls. For example the number one name for boys is Jacob, a name from the bible. The Kaisilver team took some time off hectic gems and jewelry production and compiled a truly interesting list of the top 100 names for boys and girls. While some of the names in the 100 most popular names list are expected and bring no surprises, there are indeed some very unique and unexpected entries too.

For example, on the popular names for guys list you have the name Zachary at 23. You least expect men's names like Thomas and Robert to come lower down the name Zachary. Talking about the popular girl names, Makayla drops in at number 47 leaving a rather popular girl's name like Sara way down below at 69. Check out the list of top 100 names and compare them with your expected rankings, there are quite a few surprises in store.

Another issue about popular names is related to nicknames, though not mentioned in the most popular names list, this topic is interesting enough to be included in future reports. In many cases, the short name (nickname) is so standard and popular that it outpaces the use of the real name by a wide margin. For example, Michael is always Mike, Christopher is always Chris, Elizabeth is almost always Liz and so on.

You can find these and more interesting articles on the website at The information is both interesting and useful, so don't miss it.
