I’m in Portland, OR, and the one baby name I can think of that I’m hearing with regularity is the boy name Maverick. 

If we go a little older (4-6 y.o. range), it seems like all girls are named Eva or Ava.

In ND, I have noticed a lot of Ella, Emma, Sophia, Harper for girls, and Mason, Connor, and all of the -aiden names for boys.

For girls, I see Madalyn/Madeline all over the place. Also Sophia, which I used to love!

I haven’t see as much of a straight trend in boys (the -aiden names don’t seem to have taken off in my circle)… I see a bit of a throwback trend to names from our parents/grandparents generation.

I’m in Massachusetts…. I know a bunch of Madeline/Madelyns born in the last 2 years. 

According to SSA:

Emma, Olivia, Sophia, Isabella, Ava

Benjamin, William, Jacob, Ryan, Michael

 

Seeing Benjamin at #1 in my state makes me cringe… that’s my #1 boy name!  And my favorite girl name (Charlotte) is at #9 in my state.

Swizzle:  Family friends’ newborn son is named that. My parents thought it was a horrible name. XD I personally like it, though, I don’t like how it sounds with their last name.

Here is Missouri’s list for last year. The top names are pretty much all ones that have already been listed.

http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/namesbystate.cgi

Our daughter was born last year and we named her Ella, which was the 15th most popular in the state last year.  I knew it was up there, but I’ve always liked it and it was the name that my husband and I mutually liked the best, so we went with it anyway.  I know there’s a good chance she’ll grow up with some other Ellas, but we live in a fairly small town and there were only 199 born in the entire state last year, so I’m not all that concerned about it.

The top 5 boys and girls names in Ireland.

Boys: Jack, James, Daniel, Sean, Conor

Girls: Emily, Sophie, Emma, Grace, Lily

Personally I don’t understand people picking the most popular names. I was one of those kids and it drove me mad that I was always one of 3 or 4 in the one class. Really annoying!!!
