According to the US Social Security Administration, the top baby name for boys last year (2020) was Liam, while Olivia was the top for girls.
As far as boys names go, the top 5 have stayed the same with Elijah and William swapping places to 4th and 5th. While for girls names, 4 of the top 5 names stayed the same (Olivia, Emma, Ava, Sophia) while Charlotte dropped down and Isabella popped up to 5th spot.
Further down the boys list, classic names like James, Henry and Michael still remain popular. Gianna is a new entry to the top 20 girls names, and I was interested to see Elizabeth staying in the girls’ top 20 as that’s my eldest daughter’s middle name and she was named after two great aunts of mine.
