The SSA Has Announced the Most Popular Baby Names From 2021
The Social Security Administration has announced the most popular baby names from 2021. Since 1997, the agency has been compiling a list based on the most popular names parents opted to give their children, born the previous year. Historically, the list has always been released around Mother’s Day.
This year, for the third year in a row, Olivia remains the top name for girls. Liam has been the top name for boys since 2017. While the names largely remain the same year over year, between 2020 and 2021, Charlotte and Amelia both became more popular. For boys, Theodore joined the list, replacing Alexander, who held the bottom spot in 2020.
