Revealed! The 20 Most Popular Baby Names In America

Section: Girls baby names

Want some baby name inspiration from across the pond? Researchers have discovered which names are most commonly given to babies in the US.

Researchers from FiveThirtyEight looked at the top 1000 most popular first names last year. Using statistics from the Social Security Administration database and lots of other data to make sure their results were fair, the researchers narrowed their findings down to the top 20 names.

While the list included both boys and girls names, surprisingly the majority of the top names are boys names. The researchers believe this to be because American parents tend to give their daughters more unique names.
