The Hottest Baby Names in Scotland

Mar 14th 2017

Just in from Scotland's National Records: the top baby names of 2016. Jack continues as Scotland's #1 name for boys, while Olivia supplants Emily as the #1 for girls. The full Scottish top 20:

1 Jack Olivia
2 James Emily
3 Oliver Sophie
4 Lewis Isla
5 Noah Ava
6 Logan Amelia
7 Harry Jessica
8 Alexander              Ella
9 Leo Lucy
10 Charlie Charlotte
11 Jacob Grace
12 Lucas Aria
13 Harris Ellie
14 Finlay Lily
15= Alfie Freya
15= Ethan Sophia
17 Mason Evie
18 Daniel Chloe
19 Aaron Emma
20 Max Millie

Comparing to last year with the Baby Name Wizard hotness formula, the fastest-rising boys' names in the top 100 are:

1. Arlo
2. Carter
3. Arthur
4. Conor
5. Luca

That group is diverse in origin, but remarkably consistent in sound. All five names are two syllables long, and the letters r, l and hard c reign supreme. That theme continues throughout the rising list. None of the to-20 fastest rising boys' names are over two syllables, and "mini" styles like playful O names (Leo, Theo) are especially strong.

For girls, the top risers are a genuinely varied bunch:

1. Lillie
2. Aria
3. Florence
4. Alexandra
5. Zara

That would be one old-time sweet nickname; one contemporary raindrop name; one formal late-Victorian throwback; one long regal classic; and one contemporary British favorite. At first glance, anything goes. Looking deeper on the list, though, the overall feeling of the rising girls is antique and multisyllabic, stately but delicate. Other top-20 risers include Emilia, Charlotte, Elizabeth, Imogen, Olivia, Violet and Isabella.

If you're looking for pure Scottish names that are rising in their homeland but haven't yet caught on in the U.S., try:

Hamish (M): A form of James, anglicized from Seumas

Struan (M): A place name and surname, from the Gaelic for "stream"

Mirren (F): A form of Muirenn or Marian

Hamish is a name created by people with no clue about Gaelic grammar. Seumas starts with an 'sh' sound, not an 'h'; it's the vocative case version -- the one that's often rendered "O, [Name]" in translations -- that starts with an 'h' sound. You don't name babies in the vocative case. Names should be bestowed in the nominative case, pretty much by definition.

I wonder whether Hamish is rising in Scotland because the actual Gaelic form of James sounds too much like "shame us"?

Occasionally names are in an oblique case. Offhand I can think of Phyllida, which is an oblique case of Phyllis.

Ha! HNG, I was just coming to see if you were here bashing Hamish. :) 

I'm sure you're right and that it's an offense to Gaelic grammar... it's one I heard used occasionally in Scotland though (and on the appealing Scottish TV show Hamish MacBeth) and as such have a bit of a soft spot for.

Dahulu kami sangat was-was dengan keadaan yang kami alami. Stress dikarenakan ASI tidak lancar, atau sama sekali tidak menetes. Kami sedih karena kami begitu mengerti bahwa ASI merupakan hak anak yang harus dia dapatkan. Betapa dosanya kami kalau tidak bisa menunaikan haknya. Itu yang kami rasakan. Sampai akhirnya kami menemukan tips yang begitu mudah yang bisa dijajal oleh siapa saja untuk ikhtiar melancarkan ASI.

Dari berbagai macam obat serta vitamin yang bisa memperbanyak dan lancarkan ASI, ada dua yang menurut kami sangat ampuh dan sudah dibuktikan oleh ribuan bunda dari kota-kota di Indonesia. Yaitu; Madu Pelancar ASI dan ASI Booster Tea.


Asupan ASI bagi tumbuh dan perkembangan bayi begitu penting. Misal bunda sibuk bekerja sekalipun, tugas memberi ASI untuk si bayi tentu tidak boleh berhenti. Sebagian memilih untuk memroduksi ASIP atau ASI Perah, tapi sudah benarkah tata cara menyimpannya?

Cara menyimpan ASI memang tidak boleh sembarangan, tujuannya supaya ASI tak rusak dan senantiasa aman diminum si kecil. Tempat yang baik untuk menyimpan ASI bisa memanfaatkan wadah dari bahan kaca atau plastik dengan penutup yang kedap udara seperti botol susu, atau kantong khusus untuk ASI. Jangan pakai kantong yang bukan khusus untuk ASI, khawatir berpotensi pecah ketika dibekukan di dalam freezer.
