Most Popular Baby Names by Gender and Mother Ethnic Group

$0 / year

This dataset is from the BabyCenter that has released its top 100 baby names of 2016, showing which names proved to be the most popular this year. Baby names are often a controversial subject, considering seemingly everyone has an opinion of which name sounds best and which are too out there to use. But there are a select few names out there that seem to be universally beloved.

The newly released list, which compiles data from nearly 400,000 parents, ranks the names of both genders by popularity. Let’s start with girls. According to the list, the most popular name for baby girls this year is an oldie but goodie: Sophia. The lovely moniker beat the names Emma, Olivia, Ava and Mia to become the No. 1 female baby name of 2016. No huge surprise there — the name is classic (does anyone else think of Estelle Getty from Golden Girls when they hear it?) and has multiple spellings (such as Sophia or Sofia), all of which helps make it a prevalent choice among parents.
