The boys’ top 10 includes the same 10 names, but in a different order.

The names in the top 100 that rose the fastest from 2017 to 2018 were Hailey and Lias (a short form of Elias). The names that dropped the fastest were Cornelia and Oscar. I also noticed that the ninth-fastest dropping girl name was Siri.

In 2017, the top two names in Sweden were the same.
