The results are in—and they’re not so different from last year.
Baby naming resource site Nameberry just released a list of popular names from 2016. Just like last year, Ezra takes the top spot for boys. As for girls? Olivia is taking the crown, bumping royal baby frontrunner Charlotte down to third.
