The Nameberry popularity list gauges interest levels of visitors in names, measuring which name pages received the most page views. The majority of people searching on the site are looking for names for their babies, so the popularity list measures which names parents are likely to be naming their children in 2015 and 2016, versus the official US popularity list, which looks at which names parents chose in 2014. Nameberry’s searches also register ups and downs in interest due to news — such as Princess Charlotte’s birth — or pop culture events.

In 2015, three names popularized by movies and television shows — Daenerys, Elsa and Katniss — fell off the Top 100, while Khaleesi was one of furthest-falling. Also vanishing from our popularity list are several girls’ names with the trendy double-l sound: Delilah, Lily and Lola, though Lila remains strong at Number 24.
