Popular Baby Names

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

And congratulations to all new moms who just gave birth!  Here is a small tip to help you rack your brains over naming your baby.

Social Security Administration reported a list of top baby names for 2013.  For girls, Sophia is America’s most popular baby name in the third straight year.  On the other hand, a new trend is forming in boy names.  Noah has risen to the most popular baby boy’s name for 2013, which is the first new name at number one since 1960 other than Jacob or Michael.

Here are the top ten boys and girls names for 2013:
Boys:
  1. Noah
  2. Liam
  3. Jacob

The fastest riser in boys name in the top 1,000 was Jayceon, probably influenced by the popularity of  VH1’s cable reality series “Marrying The Game“.   For girls, Daleyza, a name in a popular Spanish-language cable TV series “Larrymania”, won the biggest jump.  The second fastest riser for boys was Milan, and for girls, Marjorie.
