Jacinta a name that has never ranked in the top 1000 in America and at the bottom of the UK charts (there were four Jacinta’s born in 2012) but in Australia its quite well known maybe a little dated. It peaked at 101 in NSW in the early 2000’s it has been falling quite steadily only to start rising again in 2010 the year Jesinta Campbell won Miss Universe Australia. Jesinta has never ranked. Currently in Victoria its 260. Jacinta seems like the 2000’s Narelle and Peta never or just reached reached the top 100 and could Jacinta be headed into boganville like Narelle and Peta I guess only time will tell. I don’t actually know a Jacinta only a Jacinda (who goes by Jazzy) but I do know three Peta’s (one my age) and one Narelle.

It’s a pretty name – it would be interesting to see how popular it manages it get again.
I wonder if it will since I predicted the bogan path
I think names have to get popular before they can go there ….
Jacinta and Narelle peaked at around the same amount as I pointed out in the post Anna
True! But Jacinta hasn’t reached her earlier peak again yet.
I think 101 is quite high Peta peaked at 73 and Narelle at 50. Kirrily’s considered bogan and that never ranked
