What Does 'Change' Mean? Part 2

The next part of my analysis of the quickest-changing names from 2010-2011 is, duh, the boys. So, to start off, the boys' names that technically jumped the highest in ranking:

  1. Kenson, +8758 (#13313 --> 4555)
  2. Santi, +8498 (#13859 --> 5361)
  3. Wrangler, +8478 (#14112 --> 7984)
  4. Giulio, +8365 (#12887 --> 4522)
  5. Destan, +8338 (#12700 --> 4362)
  6. Hiroshi, +7958 (#11210 --> 3252)
  7. Linkyn, +7900 (#13446 --> 5546)
  8. Telly, +7814 (#13988 --> 6174)
  9. Tayquan, +7809 (#13981 --> 6172)
  10. Slevin, +7763 (#13923 --> 6160)
And yet again, not the most helpful data. So, the highest jumpers in rank from #2500 & up:
  1. Brentley, +899 (#2067 --> 1168)
  2. Flynn, +856 (#1803 --> 947)
  3. Cam, +694 (#2465 --> 1771)
  4. Bear, +646 (#2367 --> 1721)
  5. Eason, +643 (#2325 --> 1682)
  6. Imran, +634 (#1926 --> 1292)
  7. Deklan, +622 (#2093 --> 1471)
  8. Raylan, +598 (#1300 --> 702)
  9. Vadhir, +595 (#2338 --> 1743)
  10. Aston, +545 (#1788 --> 1243)
  11. Jaxxon, +536 (#2234 --> 1698)
  12. Willis, +532 (#2457 --> 1925)
  13. Rylin, +529 (#2415 --> 1886)
  14. Maleek, +493 (#2413 --> 1920)
  15. Ruger, +486 (#2110 --> 1624)
  16. Jed, +484 (#2236 --> 1752)
  17. Rider, +484 (#2487 --> 2003)
  18. Henri, +479 (#2074 --> 1595)
  19. Rome, +473 (#1967 --> 1494)
  20. Tadeo, +471 (#2274 --> 1803)
Some sure made some incredible leaps! Still, although mostly familiar, the majority fall pretty short of the infamous Top 1000. So, the names even more likely to become common quite soon--the highest jumpers from #1500 on up:
  1. Raylan, +598 (#1300 --> 702)
  2. Brantley, +415 (#736 --> 321)
  3. Bowen, +403 (#1127 --> 724)
  4. Crosby, +314 (#1062 --> 748)
  5. Callan, +297 (#1183 --> 886)
  6. Jaxen, +295 (#891 --> 596)
  7. Brysen, +281 (#1182 --> 901)
  8. Arian, +274 (#1197 --> 923)
  9. Iker, +266 (#646 --> 380)
  10. Vihaan, +246 (#1179 --> 933)
  11. Amos, +236 (#1097 -->: 861)
  12. Rylen, +231 (#1081 --> 850)
  13. Braylin, +215 (#1135 --> 920)
  14. Royce, +212 (#743 --> 531)
  15. Bentlee, +209 (#842 --> 633)
  16. Sylas, +208 (#835 --> 627)
  17. Jaxton, +201 (#799 --> 598)
  18. Carmelo, +196 (#777 --> 581)
  19. Benton, +187 (#1126 --> 939)
  20. Mariano, +186 (#1144 --> 958)
A fairly eclectic bunch, especially compared to the girls' list. The Brant/Brent/Ben names are probably the most prominent group, but no one trend seems to be taking over.

Next time will be a percentage-jump analysis!
