Most Popular Names in the U.S.

I came across the Social Security Administration’s list of most popular names of 2014, and I wasn’t very curious if Prettyness made the top anything. I’d guess there are less than 5 people with the name. And if you’re curious, the most popular name for boys and girls that year was Noah and Emma, respectively. Side note: Liam is reigning as #1 for boys in 2015 so far. But certain names instantly make it onto my “Names I’d Name My Kid” list. The most recent being Prettyness. Is it weird? Yes, but I can’t seem to shake it from recurring in my mind, and the more I think about it the more I like it.

I was also curious about the most popular names the year I was born. It was Michael for boys and Jennifer for girls. My mom told me if I were a girl, my name would’ve been Megan, which isn’t one of the top 10 from 1978. Neither is my actual name (it’s #12).

What are some of your favorite names? Feel free to share in the comments below!
