The New Top 200 Baby Names for Boys: A Comparison with the SSA Chart

The SSA list is on the left, with the New Top 200 (corrected for spelling) on the right.

The following names in the New Top 200 rose ten or more places compared to the SSA list:

KASON (NEW, +274)
MUHAMMAD/MOHAMED (NEW, +239)
BRAYLON (NEW, +181)
JAYLEN (NEW, +127)
ELLIOT (NEW, +95)
KAYDEN (+82)
BRIAN (+80)
ZAYDEN (+80)
REID (NEW, +78)
CASH (NEW, +76)
XANDER (NEW, +76)
ZANE (NEW, +72)
SEAN (+69)
DEREK (NEW, +67)
DEVIN (NEW, +67)
CORBIN (NEW, +58)
ALAN (+57)
ROWAN (NEW, +57)
EMMANUEL (+53)
ERIC (+49)
MALACHI (+49)
JACE (+48)
JAYCEON (+46)
AMIR (NEW, +45)
GUNNER (NEW, +45)
COLIN (+41)
STEVEN (+41)
LUCA (+36)
GIOVANNI (+32)
EMMETT (+30)
GRAYSON (+26)
EZEKIEL (+25)
JAMESON (+25)
CODY (NEW, +24)
DAMIAN (+23)
RILEY (+22)
CARSON (+20)
MADDOX (+19)
MARCUS (+19)
MILES (+19)
TRISTAN (+19)
NICHOLAS (+18)
BRYSON (+17)
SILAS (+17)
BRADEN (+16)
JACKSON (+16)
PEYTON (NEW, +16)
CAMDEN (+15)
CAMERON (+15)
KAI (+14)
CALEB (+13)
MARK (+13)
AIDAN (+12)
COLTON (+12)
DOMINIC (+12)
CONNOR (+11)
JASON (+10)
JAYDEN (+10)

Perhaps the most interesting rise is Kason, which seemingly comes from out of nowhere to plant itself in the Top 100.  This is, obviously, due entirely to its many, many spellings.

You will notice in the chart below that the drops tend to be far less dramatic and more evenly distributed amongst the droppees.  This is because the actual number of uses tends to remain fairly even on both sides of the chart from numbers 3 (19144 SSA vs 19273 New) to 200 (2167 SSA vs. 2006 New).

Note also that the push and pull of the New Top 200 against the SSA list doesn’t mean much in terms of whether a name is rising or falling in popularity compared to past years.  All this does is correct the combined spelling issue that messes with the order of the SSA list, which relies on a simple CGI counting program to generate itself.  The New Top 200 is far more accurate in terms of current popularity, but still must be compared against past years to judge overall trends.
