Baby Center Releases Top 100 Baby Names of 2016!

If you had a baby this year, chances are that your child will have a friend in school named Sophia, Emma, Jackson or Aiden in a few years. Yep, Baby Center just released the most popular baby names of 2016!

A few of the top names, as always, are repeats from previous years. (Sophia and Jackson both held the #1 spots in 2015.) But others made their first appearance on the top 10 in 2016. For girls, Riley, Aria and Charlotte were among those chosen the most by parents. And for boys, Oliver and Elijah were new popular choices.

Finally, Madison is not in the top 10 for girls this year. That name, along with Lily and Emily, dropped in popularity in 2016. And for the first time in a while, Jacob is out of the top 10 (it dropped to 12), and so is Logan (which is now at 18).
