Whether you grew up as Jennifer in the ’80s or became a mom to a Sofia in the 2000s, each decade features popular baby names that are seemingly unique to a generation. The last ten years are no exception.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has just released its list of the top baby names of the decade. The list is created by compiling and analyzing names for over 35 million babies born between 2010 and 2018. Taking the top of the list are Noah, Liam and Jacob for the boys and Emma, Sophia and Olivia for the girls.
