Sadie was 16th last year, and not in the top 20 any of the years before, so I’m thinking there are some Duck Dynasty fans up in Nova Scotia… :)

My source article says that Claire, Amelia, Sarah, Nora, and Peyton are new to the girls’ top 20 and Oliver, Luke, Gavin, Connor, John and Gabriel are new to the boys’ top 20.

Here are Nova Scotia’s rankings for 2012, 2010 and 2007.
