Did your baby’s name make the list? On May 15th, the U.S. Social Security Administration released the most popular baby names for 2012. Names such as Jacob, Mason and Isabella make the list yet again and have me wondering whether parents are choosing names based on movies like Twilight, or if authors are starting to pick names off the ‘Most Popular’ list.
Mason jumped 10 spots to become the second most popular name for baby boys last year, moving Michael out of the top five for the first time in 63 years according to the Associated Press. Come to think of it, I’ve always seen Michael in the top 5! Kind of strange now that it has moved.
Check out the top 10 for boys and girls:
Well, not one of my three children made the list, which I’m kind of relieved about. My kids don’t have rare names by any means, but I’m glad that they are a little unique . I’m really digging this list of the Top Baby Names Around The World. There are so many great choices here that aren’t so popular in the USA or Canada.
Did your child’s name make the list? If you are currently expecting are you considering naming your baby from the ‘Most Popular’ list? How did you choose your child’s name?
