The 2 New Baby Names That Squeaked Into 2019’s Top 10

Although the Social Security Administration keeps track of the official baby name records after each year has ended, the top names of 2019 are basically here, thanks to data from BabyCenter — which comes from the nearly 600,000 parents who shared their baby's name with the site in 2019.

"Sophia is celebrating a whole decade as the top choice for girls. On the boys list, Liam finally pushed out Jackson after six consecutive years as the most popular name," BabyCenter shares. "Arabic names are on the rise this year, with Muhammad and Aaliyah entering the top 10 and nudging Mason and Layla off . . . Muhammad is one of the most popular names in the world and has been a steady climber in our top names lists over the years. While non-Muslim families have a seemingly limitless range of possible names to choose from, tradition is still very important for Muslim families, including the custom of naming a son after the Prophet."

Keep scrolling to see what the top 10 names lists looked like in 2019 for both boys and girls, according to BabyCenter's data.
