Can you believe that Sophia is the top baby girl name for the ninth consecutive year? That’s quite the streak! Jackson also remains the number one boy baby name for six years in a row. We knew that these names would be popular and stick around, so we’ll see how long they continue to stay at the top.
We’ve seen a few names rise this past year, like Oliver, Everly, Carson, Leo, and Layla. We also saw a few names fall. Below we have listed the top 100 baby names of 2018. See which names rose and fell compared to last year’s list.
Note: We have combined names that sound the same but have multiple spelling, such as Sophia and Sofia or Jackson and Jaxon. This captures the true popularity of that name.

It’s a new year, and we’re predicting that these names below will be climbing the charts in 2019. They may not be at the top, but we believe they are rising.
