Top Ten Popular Baby Names of 2016
The Social Security Administration has released the most popular baby names for 2016.
The top ten for both boys and girls were released as they counted them down in the video below.
For the third consecutive year, the top two names for both boys (Noah and Liam) and girls (Emma and Olivia) received their same ranking, respectively.
The rankings listed are as such:
The biggest surge from the previous year in overall rankings for males is the name, Kylo. The name went from a ranking of 3,269 to 901. This, according to the SSA.
As for female names, Kehlani made the biggest jump from 3,359 to 872.
Previously, we've gotten a sneak preview of the Top Baby Names from Sanford Health, as well as the quirkiest baby names in North Dakota, but we'll have to wait until Thursday, May 18th when the SSA will release the list for 'Top Baby Names by State.' We'll be sure to keep you posted.
