Baby Names in Scotland – Jack, Sophie, Ringo, Renesme

Scotland’s most popular baby names of 2009 have been released. The top five boy names are Jack, Lewis, James, Liam and Logan. The top five girl names are Sophie, Olivia, Ava, Emily and Lucy. The biggest climbers since last year are Owen and Miley.

And here are some baby names that were used just once:

Girls Boys
Apple
Bonnique
Comfort
Demi-Star
Inca
Jools
Jorga
Jubilee
Juno
KT
Paris-Montana
Renesme
Vanilla
Argyll
Atholl
Elvis
Fidelis
Great
Jock
Mungo
Orpheus
Ringo
Soul
Supreme
Sweetie
Tresor

Didn’t take long for a version of Renesmee to pop up on a birth certificate somewhere, did it?

Demi-Star made me think of bras. Like, Demi-Star must be the sexier version of regular Star. (There was only one baby girl named Star, by the way, but four baby girls named Starr. I wonder why the double-R version is more popular.)

  1. I actually love the idea of Comfort!! and Jubilee which is cute-cute..
    Vanilla is okay I guess, and I would have thought there were more Junos
    Orpheus is also pretty cool, like Persephone!
    Jools is a nice nickname, but not as a full name…

    I don’t have high regards for any of the others really, but Supreme and KT (Katie) are both BAD!

  2. I really like the idea of Comfort as well. It caught my eye as I scanned the list and I just had to smile. What a sweet little name.

    KT may have been inspired by KT Tunstall, who is Scottish.

    I’d love to know where Bonnique came from. Is it Bonnie with a French ending? Is it Bonnie + Unique? Hm.

  3. Miley, oh God, I hope Miley doesn’t become popular… That poor girl is such a bad example… It’s like naming your daughter Lindsey after Lindsey Lohan right now. Miley is going done the wrong path…

  4. Ugh, Twilight. I actually have three Comforts in my family tree! I love virtue names. I’m so sad that there’s only one Comfort! But others…not so sad there’s only one: Mungo? Demi-Star? Great??

  5. As I said in the other post about the name Renesmee; heroin addiction is a big problem here in Scotland. :P
