BabyNames.com Announces Top Names of 2003
LOS ANGELES, Dec. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- In the first time for over a decade, the most popular name of the year for boys is not a traditional Biblical name. According to new and expecting parents who visit the website BabyNames.com, Aidan, Jayden and Caden are the top three most popular boys' names for 2003. Meanwhile, the mermaid-inspired Madison still holds steady at number one for most popular girls' names. BabyNames.com compiles an annual list of the Top 20 most popular baby names from over 100,000 expecting parents' favorite name lists that create on the site. The site hosts more than one million unique visitors a month from all over the world, with approximately 88% of the users from the U.S. Jennifer Moss, Senior Partner of BabyNames.com is surprised at this turn of events for naming male offspring. "Traditionally, you see more of a fluctuation and creativity in girls' names, but this is the first year we have seen such a big change in the boys' name list." "In the past 20 years, Celtic and English names -- such as Ashley, Caitlyn and Brianna -- have been extremely popular for girls," adds Moss. "And now that trend is entering the boys' list with Aidan, Dylan, Logan and Connor -- a huge break from the usual trend of Biblical names like Michael and Jacob. We think as names become uni-gender for girls, parents are taking more risks and being more creative and unique with naming their boys."
