Name Madness 2013 - FINAL ROUND

Bingo Number 64

We started with 64 names... 32 girl names and 32 boy names... from all over Europe. And now we are finally down to the final!

Wow. The contests between the girl names in Round 4 were TIGHT. In the end, there were 85 responses and there were hardly more than three or four votes between the names in both match-ups throughout the week. Match-up #1 ended with a one vote difference. The contests between the boy names were not as close, but I think the results leave a very interesting final! Here are the results to Round 4:

Anastasia 51%
Imogen 49%

Matilda 52%
Thea 48%

Callum 71%
Enzo 29%

Luka 39%
Ronan 61%

Did you think Anastasia would come out ahead of the popular-with-baby-name-lovers Imogen? And how about Matilda coming out ahead of short-but-sweet Thea? Meanwhile, Callum put a beating on the Italian/French Enzo, and Ronan quietly ends up in the final after taking out the immensely-popular-in-Europe Luka. Are you surprised with the results? Shocked? Disappointed? Thrilled?

SO... here's the FINAL:

Anastasia vs. Matilda. A name more popular in the eastern part of Europe vs. a name more popular in the western part of Europe.

Callum vs. Ronan. A name almost strictly used in the UK and Ireland (but is slowly rising in the US) vs. a name almost strictly used in Ireland.

Do you know what you are going to vote for???? Your response may be automatic or it may take some thought, but in any case, it's time to vote!

You have until Sunday, December 15 to vote. Please vote only once and for only one name in each match. Winners of Name Madness 2013 should be published on Monday, December 16. Have fun!
