This Is the Most Popular Baby Name of 2016

The little tots born in 2014 are going to grow up with a lot of Charlottes in their class. And the babes of 2015 will know their fair share of Emmas. But for the kids of 2016 there is another name that’s reigning supreme. And it just so happens to be the same name as one of our favorite TV characters. According to Nameberry, the baby girl name that’s dominating the ranks this year is – wait for it – Olivia.

Nameberry writes, “Olivia replaces Charlotte, the girls’ top name for 2015, which slips to number three. Amelia, Ava and Isla round out the girls’ top five. Five new girls’ names ascend to the top 10 in 2016: Arabella, Aurora, Adeline, Isabella and Mia.” This might be a result of our not-so-subtle obsession with all things Shonda Rhimes and vintage baby names, but either way, we’re totally down for more Olivias in the world.
