Was I Right?


By now, you may have already seen the new 2014 SSA baby name list. The new #1 for the girls is Emma! That was a complete shock to me. But most of the Top 10 names themselves haven't changed... James is new on the boy side (replacing Jayden) and Charlotte is new on the girl side (replacing Elizabeth).

A month ago, I made predictions on name that I thought would enter the Top 100. Here are the results...

GIRLS

Alice
2013 Rank: #107
2014 Rank: #97
Difference: +10
Result: I was right!

Cora
2013 Rank: #127
2014 Rank: #103
Difference: +24
Result: Almost!

Elsa
2013 Rank: #528
2014 Rank: #286
Difference: +242
Result: Wow. A huge increase. But nowhere close to the Top 100... yet.

Everly
2013 Rank: #383
2014 Rank: #178
Difference: +205
Result: Another huge jump, and a bit closer to the Top 100!

Vivian
2013 Rank: #119
2014 Rank: #98
Difference: +21
Result: Yay, me!

BOYS

Asher
2013 Rank: #104
2014 Rank: #93
Difference: +11
Result: Winner!

Ezra
2013 Rank: #143
2014 Rank: #119
Difference: +24
Result: Closer.

Jayce
2013 Rank: #146
2014 Rank: #150
Difference: -4
Result: BOO! Not only was I wrong, but it went down!

Leo
2013 Rank: #112
2014 Rank: #97
Difference: +15
Result: Goodie!

Maddox
2013 Rank: #169
2014 Rank: #163
Difference: +6
Result: Not impressive.

The overall scoop? Out of the 10 predictions, I was right about 4 of them. Not too bad, I suppose. All except one made moves up the chart, so I was mostly on the right path at least. ;)

What are your thoughts on the new list? Lots more to observe...
