Liam and Olivia, the reigning #1 names, retain their crowns for another year. The matching “ia” pairs in the two names showcase the hottest sound in contemporary names: two consecutive vowel sounds for pure smoothness.

Yet throwback sounds show some momentum as well. The kingly classic Henry returns to the top 10 for the first time after a 109-year absence.

There’s lot’s more news to come as we get our first look at the the names of a truly extraordinary year. How did the pandemic affect baby name choices? What about the protests for racial justice? The presidential election? Stay tuned for the fastest rising and falling names of the year and analysis of important trends. I’ll also be posting surprises and discoveries throughout the day on Twitter: follow @NamerologyTalk.
