Most Popular Baby Names of 2013

And the Most Popular Baby Names of 2013 Were . . .

Move over, Jacob! There's a new baby name in town. The Social Security Administration just released its annual list of the year's most popular baby names. The list, which is often released right before Mother's Day, is based on information parents provide when applying for their child's Social Security number. More than four million babies were issued Social Security numbers in 2013, and the majority of them were named Noah or Sophia. This is the first time Noah earned the top spot for boy's names, edging out the 14-year champion Jacob, while Sophia continued its reign as the most popular girl's name.
