Since yesterday I posted the most popular girls names I feel like I should follow it up with boys names. For the girls 40% are still top ten and all of them still make the top 50 is that the case with the most popular male choices of 1999?

Biggest Riser: William

The boys names fared even worse with 4 names remaining in the top 10 but Nicholas and Matthew fell a lot more the biggest faller of the girls. But all of these names still work well none are too dated I actually know a baby Nicholas and Matthew but no young William’s, Liam’s and Jack’s.

  1. These are all still standards – I know lots of babies called William, Liam, and Jack, but it’s a while since I met a baby Joshua in person. I seem to know to lot of young men and teenagers with the name.

    1. I agree I wouldn’t be shocked to meet anyone of any age with any of these names Joshua and Nicholas I would find a little strange but get used to very quickly since the only Joshua I’ve actually met was a teacher of mine who would be in his thirties and Nicholas is the name of my 20 year old cousin (but he’s exclusively Nick) and a few others my age.

      1. My mums cousin has a baby named Nicholas who’d be almost one but other then that all the Nicholas’s I know are teenagers and go by Nick or Nic
