Look, no fantasy names on the list!

On the girls side Vilja (will) and Tindra (glistening) have disappered. And on the boys side, no Avatar or Nemo on the list.

But do you know what else is missing? No names with the swedish alfabethic letters Å, Ä or Ö (å,ä,ö) are on the list.

Where are Björn, Märta, Åke? Or Hjördis, Börje and Åsa? I think these name will disappaer since everybody want to give their child an "international name".

True - no Swedish letters. All the short cute old-fashioned, even Viking-old fashioned names are up there high on the list. The Catholic 3-syllabus names such as Maria, Margareta, Helena, Katarina - they are all gone. It is interesting in Sweden how names are so homogeneous, you really can tell a kid crop based on their names.
