The stats are in! Introducing the top 10 names for US boys and girls in 2022:
Olivia has now ranked among the top three girls’ names for a decade straight; Emma for two decades. Together, the names have provided a stead anchor at the top as trends have moved from Madison and Alexis to Isabella and Sophia to Charlotte and Evelyn. On the boys’ side, Liam and Noah continue to tower over the field with no close competition.
The only newcomer to either top 10 is Luna, edging out Harper for girls.
If this all seems like non-news, remember that the top of the charts always paint an illusory picture of stability. The shrinking top 10 sits atop a diverse, creative and rapidly changing cohort of names—names with stories to tell.
