What Are The Popular Baby Names

Have you ever wondered which are the popular baby names?

Have you ever wondered what baby names were popular the year you were born?

Did you know the Social Security Administration keeps a record of the popular baby names?

They do, and they have a record of popular baby names that goes back to 1879.

Just go to their website at Social Security.gov, and check out the popular baby names for previous years. Or use their search tool to find out which baby names were popular the year you were born, the popularity of a name, the top 1000 names by decade, and coming soon, the top baby names by state.

How did your name rank? Was it a popular baby name when you were born?

    It turns out that Lisa was popular the year I was born and Sheila has never made it past #40 and that was back in the mid 20th century. Boy I feel old. :)

  2. Hi Dr. Cason,

    Great to see you over here.

    Isn’t is amazing how the names change over the years? In some years it seems like tons of kids are named the same. That must make it difficult when parents are calling for their children in public places like the park.

    “Come here Billy”….and ten kids come running. :lol:
