Best Baby Names
Best Baby Names

Looking for the perfect name for your yet-to-be-born?

BabyCenter.com analyzed the names of the 550,000 babies registered on their site this year.

The most popular name for boys was “Jackson,” beating “Aiden,” which held the top spot for the last EIGHT years.

“Sophia” topped the girls’ list for the fourth year in a row.

For boys, the top 10 names are Jackson, Aiden, Liam, Lucas, Noah, Mason, Jayden, Ethan, Jacob, and Jack.

For girls, it’s Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Isabella, Mia, Ava, Lily, Zoe, Emily, and Chloe…almost identical to last year’s list.

The name “George” was up 37% as a GIRL’S name…maybe because of the Royal baby, Prince George (just…weird).

“Kanye” was up almost 40%, “West” was up 22% as a first name, and “Kim” was up 12%.  However BabyCenter.com didn’t find a single “North” in their database

“Miley” was only up 3%…but the cast of “Duck Dynasty” made waves, with the name “Korie” rising 89% in popularity, “Mia” 44%, “Phil” 32%, and “Sadie” 23%.

If you’re naming your child after a “Duck Dynasty” star…we need to talk.  :-)
