Every year the Social Security Administration releases the top baby names for the year (this is for 2016, FYI).

Here’s where Washington stacked up:

Here’s the top 5 baby girl names:

  1. Emma
  2. Olivia
  3. Sophia
  4. Evelyn
  5. Ava

As for the top 5 baby boy names:

  1. Liam
  2. Benjamin
  3. Oliver
  4. James
  5. Noah

Last year the most popular baby girl and baby boy names were Olivia and Oliver. I wonder what we will see next year! For more information, visit ssa.gov.
