The popularity of the female name Sawyer has grown by 836% since 2005, Charlie by 457%, Elliot by 267%, Parker by 261%, and Dylan by 76%.

You might also consider rooting for these notable longshots — five names that remain uncommon among women, but that have nevertheless seen their popularity increase significantly in the last 10 years.


But even some of the very trendiest female-adopted names remain dwarfed by their massive male contingents. For example, of all 11,172 Dylans born in the United States last year, just 8% were girls.


If you ask us, the smart money's on Frankie and Charlie. Nearly half of all babies given these names in 2014 were female. (Frank and Charles, however, remain overwhelming male.)
