BabyCenter’s most popular 100 baby names for the US in 2020 has been released.
For girls, Sophia remained the most popular name for the 11th year in a row. While the top ten names haven’t changed since last year, they did get rearranged. Riley jumped up six spots, while Aaliyah outdid Amelia and Mia, and Aria slipped behind Isabella.
This year’s choice boy’s name was Liam, followed by runner-up Noah. Caden dropped three places, Elijah overtook Grayson and Lucas, and Muhammad dropped out of the top 10 completely.
Other notable inclusions on the list include Kobe, which shot up 175% after basketball legend Kobe Bryant lost his life in a tragic helicopter accident alongside his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, whose name was up 216%.
Kamala rose in popularity by 104%, while Karen and Chad declined by 13% and 12%.
