2018's Most Popular Names Are Ready to Rock Your Baby’s Birth Certificate in 2019
You can always count on the beginning of a new year for fresh starts, but for baby name fanatics (It's a thing, I swear!), it means the compilation of the previous year's baby name data — and in 2018, there was a lot of exciting movement in the top 100 name lists for both girls and boys.
Although the official most popular names list will be released by the Social Security Administration later in 2019, this list compiled by BabyCenter likely won't end up being *too* far off. To compile its list, "BabyCenter takes its huge database of names given to babies [during the] year and combines names that have different spellings but sound the same – like Sophia and Sofia or Jackson and Jaxon – to provide a measure of true popularity." So unlike the government's list, which will include various spellings of the same names, this list is able to share even more popular names.
Check out 2018's most popular names below, which will serve your baby's future birth certificate well if you're looking for a trendy name.
