Top Florida baby names for 2017 announced

Top Florida baby names for 2017 announced”

Data sourced from the United States Social Security Administration.

Many fast-rising names appear to be tied to pop culture references, the agency said, leading to many more children named Wells, Dream and Nova: "This year reality television seems to have influenced mom and dad".

The Social Security Administration released their most popular boy and girl baby names of 2017 in each state on Thursday.

The SSA first began compiling the baby name list in 1997; moreover, the agency claims that names date back to 1880. Use the rank sliders - in purple and blue - to filter name ranks. The third most popular name in OR for girls was (game-changer) Sophia.

As was the case with the nation as a whole, Sophia and Sofia combined would have far outstripped Emma in California: There were 2,726 new Emmas in the state previous year, but more than 4,000 babies named Sophia or Sofia. On the girls' side, the most distinctly Californian names were No. 7 Camila (23rd in the U.S.) and No. 14 Luna (37th). Liam and Olivia topped the list. James, while being in the top 10 nationally, came in at spot No. 4.

Few things are as delightfully fickle as naming a baby - no matter how much thought we think we put into it. Trends in the popularity of names - or lack thereof - for newborns dip and spike like a roller coaster, leaving even sociologists scratching their heads.

For boys the top name in OR was Oliver, also lingering in the Top 10 for several years.
