Top Baby Names of the 2010s Released
The new SSA tally of the top 200 names of the decade is based on the popular name counts for the years 2010 through 2018, the most recent year calculated. The US list of most popular baby names in 2019 will be released in May 2020.
The top baby names of the decade include several names currently ranking among the most popular names as well as a handful of others whose popularity is waning.
Top Girl Names of the 2010s
Emma, Sophia, Isabella, and Emily have all ranked at Number 1 in various years. Charlotte is the newest member of this elite group of girls’ names, popularized by Britain‘s little princess, while Madison has fallen the furthest, now at Number 22.
Top Boy Names of the 2010s
Compared with the SSA’s top names of the 2000s, six of the Top 10 girls’ names are the same: Emily (Number 1 in the 2000s decade count), Madison, Emma, Olivia, Isabella, and Abigail. Hannah, Samantha, Elizabeth, and Ashley have dropped out.
On the boys’ side, even fewer names still rank among the Top 10 a decade later: Jacob (Number 1 of the 2000s), Michael, Ethan, and William. Joshua, Matthew, Andrew, Daniel, Christopher, and Joseph do not make the 2010s Top 10.
