New babies are so precious, but it can be tricky trying to figure out what to name them. Do you go with a classic, traditional name? Do you honor a family member and dig through the genealogy files to find a relative whose name you admire? Do you forge your own path and choose something out of the ordinary? For babies born in 2015, the most common baby names show a strong trend of traditional names, some of which have kept their rank as among the top ten baby names for the past decade. Take a look at some of 2015’s most named names.
Emma has been in the top five of most popular baby girl names in the United States since 2002. This classic, simple favorite has climbed to number one in 2008 and again in 2014 and 2015. Interestingly, the name Emma was among the top ten baby girl names throughout the 1880s as well. So, though the popularity of this name may wane a bit in the decade to come, it will possibly follow the trend and be a big hit again in another hundred years or so. Olivia and Sophia continue to be popular girl names as well, holding in the top three most popular US names for more than two years in a row.
