The latest popular baby name list comes from BabyCenter. Released in December 2019, it’s the most recent reference for parents wondering exactly what are the most popular baby names of the year.
Sophia leads the girls’ list for a whopping 10th year in a row, while Liam finally pushed Jackson out of the top spot for boys. With data taken from nearly 600,000 parents, the list highlights not only the most popular names, but also some trends for name picking. For instance, new moms and dads are finding inspiration from pop culture, with names like Cassian, Rex and Ezra from the latest in the "Star Wars" franchise. And, of course, the new royal baby started a nickname-as-first-name trend that people love.
Check out what made the list this year.
