Most Popular Baby Names—Revealed!

The Social Security Administration finally revealed the list of the most popular baby names for 2013, and it’s a new number one—at least on the boys’ side. Finally knocking Jacob out of the top spot after more than a decade is the Biblical Noah! On the girls’ side, Sophia still reigns supreme, with a little switching of spots between the next three: Emma, Olivia and Isabella. Here’s the whole top 10 for boys—and for girls!

Top 10 for Boys & Girls

1. Noah & Sophia

2. Liam & Emma

3. Jacob & Olivia

4. Mason & Isabella

5. William & Ava

6. Ethan & Mia

7. Michael & Emily

8. Alexander & Abigail

9. Jayden & Madison

10. Daniel & Elizabeth
