Less popular girls names

You may be put off choosing a name that is so popular your little one is likely to share it with three other school friends. But you may also feel that picking a really unusual name that is a little too ‘out there’ to suit your taste. To compromise, we look at some girls names that haven’t made it into the Top 50. 

Once hugely popular, Holly is heading down at 63rd place these days. Maddison is clinging on in the Top 100 having dropped 15 places at 99 and similarly, Megan looks like it will be an uncommon name in the classroom as it clings on to the 100th spot. 

Classic names are also heading down the charts with Anna dropping 11 places to 75 and Zoe which was once considered modern is also down 11 places to 97.
