What names are popular locally around you?

I'd say the names i hear the most where i live are

Aaliyah
Isabella
Emily
Madison
Madeline
Emma
Addison
Olivia

and for boys i hear the most of

Mason
Tyler
Alexander
Hunter
Aidan
Noah
Liam

I notice in some areas names are more rare. In more upper crest neighborhoods and a lot of the east coast states seem to like names like Henry, Oliver, William, Thomas and girls names like Lucy, Alice, Margaret, Catherine and Alice
In a lot of western states it seems they make more alternative name choices, and a lot of names in the south that are popular are not as popular in other regions names like Landon, Hunter, Gunnar seem to be less popular in the northern states, at least according to an article i read.

What names are popular amongst your neighborhood, friends, relatives etc. who have kids 0-5
