The Top Baby Names in Every US State

Liam and Emma continue to reign as America’s top baby names. Depending on where you live, though, you might be more likely to meet babies named Amelia and Oliver, or Harper and Grayson. For your browsing pleasure, here are the top 5 baby names in each state.

While the top of the charts is, by definition, mostly about consensus, you can still find local color. Alabama and Mississippi still name lots of boys John. Massachusetts continues its love affair with Benjamin. The northern half of the country leans toward Oliver, the southern half toward Elijah. And for literal local color, you can’t beat Aurora as the #1 girl’s name in Alaska.
