After having writer’s block, I thought I would do a fun top 5 list of women’s names in Sweden.
These are the overall standings, not just the most popular names from the past year.
2011 Rank: 100
Number of women in Sweden with the name: 444599
Number of men in Sweden with the name: 619
Name day: 28 February
Maria Montazami, the girl from all the annoying
casino Ving ads (I confused her with Victoria Silvstedt) and is the ‘hemmafru i Hollywood’
2011 Rank: Not in top 100
Number of women in Sweden with the name: 248121
Number of men in Sweden with the name: 0
Namne day : 20 July
Margareta Valdermarsdotter, queen of Denmark and Norway, 1387-1412, and over Sweden, 1389-1412.
You can see how Christianized Sweden is today. There are few popular Nordic names which is a disappointment because they are beautiful and fun to say!
