(WMCH) — The list of the most popular baby names for the year has been released by BabyCenter.
The list of most popular girl and boy names is complied based on 340,000 parents who shared their baby’s name with BabyCenter in 2015. The names might not surprise you, as a few of them have been at the top of the list for years now.
The top name for girls is Sophia. The top name for boys is Jackson.
Sophia has been a powerhouse for six years, thanks to the variety of spelling options and the multi-ethnic, multi-language appeal of the name,” said Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global Editor in Chief. “I predict Jackson’s popularity will be more fleeting. We’ll likely have a new number-one boys’ name next year.”
