Top Baby Names in the United States

Posted FYI.

This webpage has tables of the most popular American baby names in the United States in the last 100 years and for each decade. Also State by State. Click on the links to the left.

I remember when I was pregnant, picking a baby name was pure torture. For my last baby, I was in labour in a waiting room when I finally settled on a name (and no I'm not publishing it here.) I was weighing two names, and I picked the one that sounded better in French. Then I had to phone my husband to pick a spelling. (My husband was babysitting the kids.)

When you're a kid thinking of baby names for your kids, you never imagine your husband will actually disagree with you.
