Hi! I was just wondering if anyone knew of a website that had the top names for recent years. I have a book but it only lists the most popular for 2003. I'd like to know the most recent top 10 so as I can avoid them!!! I don't want my little one to be one of 3 with the same name in his/her class if possible! :wv

This might help Sean and Sarah have been revealed as the most popular baby names in Ireland last year. Figures from the CSO today show that just under 1,000 boys were named Sean last year, with Jack, Conor, Adam and James making up the top-five. Almost 700 girls were named Sarah, followed by Emma, Katie, Aoife and Sophie in the popularity stakes. The top five boys' names have all been the same since 1998, with only their order changing from year to year. Emma, Sarah and Aoife have been in the top five girls' names for the same length of time. Elsewhere, two new boys name - Senan and Tristan - are in the top 100 for the first time this year, with Cameron, Calum and Rory also increasing in popularity. There were three first-time entries in the top-100 for girls - Aoibheann, Aoibinnn and Jasmine.

I'm impressed twinklegirl! Thank you so much! I was hoping Jack had lost some popularity. No such luck! No mention of my girls name though!!! :wv

Well it hasn't been mentioned yet!!! I'll say it to hubby though! I could cope with a name from the top 100 - I'm a bit reluctant to go with the top 5. Hubby likes Jack - as do I. I've been trying to convince him that Zack is almost like Jack - only not a popular!!! He doesn't seem to be taking the bait though :o0
