March Madness Baby Names 2020: Girls SemiFinalsThe March Madness baby names semifinals are here!

We started with sixteen names, all chosen from the most popular posts at Appellation Mountain in calendar year 2019. The opening round cut that list in half, and the quarter finals eliminated four more contenders.

The winning name will join past champions:

  • Louisa in 2011
  • Genevieve in 2012
  • Isla in 2013
  • Cora in 2014 and 2015
  • Sylvie in 2016
  • Wren in 2017
  • Eliza in 2018
  • Margot in 2019

But before we can get to this week’s contest, it’s time to review last week’s match-ups.

  • After barely squeaking into the semifinals, Emmeline stays alive for another round! Emmeline brushed past Juniper, with 50.23% of the total.
  • Marigold handily defeated Faye, raking in over 64% of the vote tally.
  • In the third match-up, Esme triumphed over Sloane, with just over 60% of the total.
  • Tess just barely bested Vera, with a little over 52% of the total.

I can imagine any of these four fitting right in with past March Madness baby name winners. But the outcome is up to you!
