Which names are the most popular in your state?

By Alessia Santoro

Although the top spots in the list of the most popular names in the US rarely change year to year (let alone decade to decade), that one generalized list isn't the be-all-end-all when it comes to the breakdown within each individual state.

That being said, spoiler alert: there isn't much change in the top five names for both genders in each state, especially when it comes to girls' names. However, the yearly breakdown by the Social Security Administration is interesting nonetheless and gives some insight into which names may just take over those coveted top slots in a few years' time (my guess is Wyatt for boys and Evelyn for girls).

See which 10 baby names are most popular in your state below!
