Top Baby Names of 2016 and 2017

If you or someone you know welcomed a baby in 2016 or are expecting in 2017 you should have fun reading and sharing this blog about top baby names. Care to make a prediction with us? Did your baby’s name make the lists? We would love to hear from you in the comments!

A lot goes into a name, especially when naming your own baby.

You want to find that balance. Something pronounced fairly easily, sounds audibly appealing, and will grow with your child. Something that embraces the future! No ex names surely. And, while kids can be mean and find a way to pick fun at any name you’re not trying to make it any easier for them either! Do you lean towards classical names or something more unique? Perhaps you have a family name that will be passed down or you would like to honor a lost loved one by naming your baby after them.

No matter how you reach your decision rest assured your baby will carry on a legacy. One that you began with a name and that is really saying something!

We have tracked down the top five baby boy and baby girl names of 2016. We also have a prediction for the top baby names for 2017. Does your baby’s name make the list? Were you considering any of these names? We want to hear from you!

In 2016 the top baby names for boys were:

  1. Jackson
  2. Aiden
  3. Lucas
  4. Liam
  5. Noah

In 2016 the top baby names for girls were:

The most popular boy name at First Coast Doulas for 2016 is Jackson or the variation of Jaxson! Aiden held a close second. Our most popular girl names for 2016 are Sophia and Sarah who tied for most popular!

Would you believe that according to census data, the name Mary was the most popular name for girls from 1900-1959! Incredible, 59 years. Just for fun First Coast Doulas predicts that in 2017 at least three of the following names will make the top baby names list: David, Kyle, Violet, James, Peyton or Payton, Cohen, Oscar, Nelson, Elizabeth, Zane, Carrie, and finally Cora

We skipped Mary since it seemed a tad predictable!
