Jacob Is Not The Most Popular Name For Boys Anymore

After 14 years on the top of the list for baby boy names, Jacob falls and there is a new name at No. 1!

The Social Security Administration just released the most popular baby names for 2013 and for boys, it’s Noah and for girls, it’s Sophia. Sophia has been on the top of the list for the last 3 years.

The list for boys:
Noah, Liam, Jacob, Mason, William, Ethan, Michael, Alexander, Jayden and Daniel.

The list for girls:
Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Isabella, Ava, Mia, Emily, Abigail, Madison and Elizabeth.

Also, since 1960, this is the first time the most popular boys name wasn’t Jacob or Michael. In 1960 it was David.
