2017’s Most Popular Baby Names For Boys And Girls

By Jay Edwards

For the 3rd year in a row, the #1 name for boys and girls remains the same. Can you guess what it is?

The Social Security Administration released their annual list of the top baby names and the fastest-growing name for a boy is Kylo, as in Kylo Ren, the villain in the new “Star Wars” trilogy. It jumped almost 2,400 spots from #3269 to #901. The second-biggest jumper was Creed, which was obviously helped by the recent movie of the same name. For girls, Kehlani was the biggest mover, from #3,359 to #872.


Here are the most popular baby names for boys and girls over the last year:

For boys, Noah took the #1 spot, followed by Liam, William, Mason, James, Benjamin, Jacob, Michael, Elijah, and Ethan.

For girls, it’s Emma at #1, followed by Olivia, Ava, Sophia, Isabella, Mia, Charlotte, Abigail, Emily, and Harper.
