SAINT CHARLES, Mo., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As the year passes its midpoint, Mom365 is reviewing its Baby Names list to determine the top choices of the first half of 2017. This daily tracker collects data from over 1,500 hospitals nationwide, allowing parents to remain up to the minute on baby-naming trends.
Here, we've collected the top five baby names of the first half of 2017, both for all genders and broken down into girls and boys categories. The lists have shown consistency over the past few years, with some names rising or falling slightly in popularity.
Below are the most popular names of 2017 so far:
The list of names remains the same as last year, with Noah, Liam and Ava maintaining their positions. However, Olivia and Emma have swapped places, with Emma taking the No. 2 spot and Olivia falling to No. 4.
Again, the list remains the same, but the individual names have switched ranks. Emma has overtaken Olivia as No. 1, while Isabella and Sophia switched to become No. 4 and No. 5, respectively. Ava remains in the center at No. 3.
Noah and Liam kept their spots this year, but Elijah made an impressive jump from No. 5 to No. 3. Mason remained in the No. 4 position, while Michael fell to No. 5.
The Mom365 Baby Names tracker is a premier resource for parents, helping them discover the most popular monikers and provide a fitting, meaningful name for their child. It tracks the top 100 names, as well as the 100 most popular for both boys and girls, and provides the origins and meanings behind each. The tracker is just one part of Mom365's efforts to provide best-in-class information and resources for new parents.
