Here Are the Top Baby Names of 2016 (So Far)
The most popular baby names of 2016 (so far) have been tallied, and we have a new number one baby name for girls: Olivia. This is the first time Olivia has taken the top spot in Nameberry’s popularity polls, unseating Charlotte. Olivia ranks in second place in the official US and British name standings, and is also a popular international baby name, at number one in Australia and New Zealand. Olivia is a Latin name meaning “olive tree;” her male counterpart, Oliver, is also popular.
Charlotte was the number one girls’ name for all of 2015, buoyed by the naming of England‘s baby princess, and also ruled the Nameberry charts for several previous years. Emma is the number one girls’ baby name in the US for 2014, the most recent year counted by the Social Security administration. The most popular boys’ name so far in 2016 is the Biblical Ezra, which also ruled Nameberry’s 2015 list. In fact, the first seven names on the boys’ Top 10 are identical to the full year 2015 results. There are only two new entrants to the boys’ Top 10, with Levi and Wyatt replacing Jude and Jasper.
In the girls’ Top 10 for 2016, there are three new A-starting names: Arabella, Aurora and Adeline, taking over from Cora, Lucy and Evelyn. Our name rankings are based on Namberry’s most-visited pages of the nearly 20 million views of our individual name pages in the first three months of this year.
