You can also look up popular names by birth year on the website I linked below.


Top 10 Names for 2008

Rank Male name Female name
1 Jacob Emma
2 Michael Isabella
3 Ethan Emily
4 Joshua Madison
5 Daniel Ava
6 Alexander Olivia
7 Anthony Sophia
8 William Abigail
9 Christopher Elizabeth
10 Matthew Chloe
Note: Rank 1 is the most popular, rank 2 is the next most popular, and so forth.

I posted this in the replies, but I wanted to put it here-

Zaiden, Jaidyn, Haiden, Jadyn, Raiden, Aidyn, Kaeden, Aydin, Bradyn, Aydan, Zayden, Braeden, Aaden, Braydon, Adan, Aden, Caiden, Cayden, Jaiden, Braden, Kayden, Caden, Jaden, Hayden, Aidan, Brayden, Aiden, Jayden

All of those names together make up 3.7924% of the list, which is more than THREE TIMES the top name on the list.

The ones highlighted in red make up 1.297%, which beats out Jacob for #1, so yes, Aiden and its variations are the number 1 most popular name in the country and yes, I have entirely too much time on my hands!!!!!

Jaiden comes in at 1.2325%, so that would be #2!

I know! My son is Aiden and it seems like a lot of people are naming their son that.

My children are unvaccinated, your children are vaccinated. So what the hell are you worried about? I don't owe vaccinating parents a damn thing. My children will not be a lab rat for the greater good of society. Sorry if you don't like it. Build a bridge and get over it.

We were throwing around the name Nolan for this baby.

DS is Donovan DeAngelo and this next one will be Willow Sabelle for sure for a girl and probably Dominick Francesco Dane for a boy.

None of them are the top 100, except maybe Dominick.

It's #16. I have seen it as number one on other lists. According to the social security administration, it hasn't been, I am wondering where the other lists get their information. I've also seen my son's name in the top 50 on other lists and it's not according to ssa.
