Popular Dutch baby names in 2010

SVB, the agency responsible for distributing child benefits in The Netherlands, publishes annual lists of the most popular Dutch baby names.

The top 10 boy names for 2010 (last year's position between brackets):

  1. Sem (2)
  2. Lucas (3)
  3. Milan (8)
  4. Daan (1)
  5. Jayden (5)
  6. Tim (7)
  7. Levi (16)
  8. Thomas (6)
  9. Thijs (11)
  10. Jesse (10)

I was responsible for one boy's name in 2010, but that name did not reach the top 10 (it was number 70). 859 boys born in 2010 were named Sem.

The top 10 girl names for 2010 (last year's position between brackets):

  1. Sophie (2)
  2. Julia (3)
  3. Emma (1)
