Most Popular Name Letters

I have just been building an order for a customer of ours, who asked for the most popular name train letters to fill a couple of display stands. This has made me think how much children's names have changed so much since I was at school.
Wooden Letter Train
I think the most shocking statistic for me in the most popular name letters top ten, is the letter P at number 25! Yes, that's right, the letter P is less popular in children's names today than X or Z.
When I was at school, I had friends named Peter, Paul, Penny, Penelope & Poppy, but don't recall anyone who's name contained the letter Z.

Here is the official most popular letters list, based on our wooden letter train sales in 2010.
