2019 Comeback Kids

We are coming up on our last post for today but don't worry there will be many more posts about the new SSA list in the weeks to come! I am not done spending all my free time looking at the list and lucky for me I have a 12 day staycation coming up. Below I have a list of all the comeback kid names. What is a comeback kid name? It is a name that has been on the top 1000 before but has been off the list for 1 or more years. Below you will see the name with the spot it is ranked in 2019 and below each name is the last year it was ranked with the spot it was that year.

2019 SSA Top 100

The top 100 list is always a line for people it is either too popular and just right. Personally I can't decide. Years ago I would have said that the list was too popular and never pick a name in the top 100 but now I say otherwise. Some of my favorite names are in the top 100. Of those names I have never or rarely hear kids with the names. That is something to take into consideration: How many babies do you know with the names in the top 100? 

To my surprise there were only 4 new to the top 100 names for each gender. Last year there were almost double that for girls. I feel like there wasn't as much moving and grooving overall to the list this year. 






All of the boy names that entered the top 100 do not surprise me. I have been waiting for Kai to enter the top 100 for a few years now. Its one of the names I always see around the naming community. Luca is a name that I can see the appeal of. It ends in an A and is very similar to the much more popular name Lucas. 


I am split on the new girl names to the top 100. I wouldn't have expected Peyton to enter the top 100. This name has been in the top 100 before and even ranked in the top 50 in the early 2010s. For that reason I would expect it to go down. Rylee has been hovering just outside the top 100 for a few years now. Parents see the appeal of the name for the unique yet girly spelling. It honestly surprises me that Arya is just now entering the top 100 even after all the years of the super popular Game of Thrones series. 


Because 8 new names entered the top 100 8 names had to leave the top 100. Here are the names that dropped off. The 2018 rank is first and the new 2019 rank is second.

Jason #100 --> #104
Sawyer #99 --> #106
Bryson #93 --> #102
Brayden #84 --> #101

Brielle #99 --> #101
Kaylee #97 --> #114
Arianna #95 --> #116
Alexa #90 --> #139


I am not surprised at the names that dropped off the list especially for Alexa. I think the name is going to keep dropping off the list due to the popular virtual assistant. I think the Brayden names are becoming less and less popular and the numbers show that for sure. When it comes to Sawyer I think the name will jump in and out of the top 100. 

Last year I did something new and I want to do it again this year. I am going to take a look at the names that had the biggest moves within the top 100. These are names that were already there but had a big jump.   

1. Miles (#75) +23
2. Ezekiel (#71) +16
3. Maverick (#58) +15
4. Jameson (#77) +14
5. Santiago (#69) +43

1. Isla (#57) +25
2. Eliana (#62) +21
3. Ivy (#68) +18
4. Valentina (#65), Emilia (#42) +16
5. Willow (#46) +14


2019 SSA Name List (Finally!)

After nearly 4 months of waiting the brand new 2019 SSA most popular list is out!!!! I am screaming and not going to lie I jumped off the couch so fast I made my mom concerned. Thanks to babynames.com for alerting me to the new list being out. If I'm being honest I did not believe it was really out at all and had to check and double check. A few weeks I ago I checked out of curiosity and had lost hope the list would be making an appearance any time soon. 

So without waiting any longer let's dive in to the much awaited name list starting with he top 19 most popular names. 






Boys
1. Liam
2. Noah
3. Oliver +2
4. William -1
5. Elijah +2
6. James -2
7. Benjamin -1
8. Lucas 
9. Mason
10. Ethan +2


Girls 
1. Olivia +1
2. Emma -1
3. Ava
4. Sophia +1
5. Isabella -1
6. Charlotte
7. Amelia +1
8. Mia -1
9. Harper 
10. Evelyn


Compared to last years list the boy names had move moving and grooving while the girl names only moved a spot if that. Yet when you take a look back at the movements of the top 10 in 2018 you will find that the top 5 girl names did not change at all last year. So in hindsight the girl names did have some big moves. The biggest move is the overtaking of Emma by Olivia for the number 1 spot. 

The only new comer to the top 10 was Ethan. He knocked out Logan. Surprisingly (or maybe not) Ethan last ranked in the top 10 in 2016 at #10 but prior to that Ethan ranked in the top 10 from 2002 to 2016 with his highest ranking being in 2009 and 2010 at #2. 

Let's look at some fun facts for the #1 names for 2019.

Liam
  • Has ranked #1 for 3 years now. 
  • The name first entered the top 10 in 2012
  • The name didn't enter the top 1000 until 1967 
Olivia
  • Has been in the #2 spot for the last 5 years
  • First entered the top 10 back in 2001 at #10 
  • Olivia has ranked in the top 1000 every year since 1880 

So what are your thoughts? Are you shocked the name list is out right now?
