The Most Popular Baby Names for 2021
The results are in and it's official: Olivia and Liam are the most popular baby names of 2021 according to BabyCenter!
There wasn't much of a change for baby girls names since last year, with the exception of a few minor swaps. But there was some new names made it into the top ten, Levi and Asher.
BabyCenter's baby name rankings come from hundreds of thousands of parents who share their babies' names making the list a more up-to-the-minute look at what's trending.
No new baby girl names cracked the top ten in 2021, although some small shuffles in popularity occured. Charlotte moved up two spots from number 8 to number 6, while Amelia rose from number 5 to number 3. Ava, Sophia, Isabella, and Mia each dropped one spot. Sorry ladies.
But here is something really interesting. Ted Lasso-inspired baby names are *huge* this year. Keeley, Roy, Jamie, and Rupert moved on to the list. You know Ted Lasso, the wonderful comedy/drama on Apple TV. The popularity and feel-good element of that show has made it so popular that, of course, new parents just might lean in that direction. I haven't seen Ted on the list, however.
Here, at least, are the Top Ten Baby Names for 2021 from BabyCenter!
