The results are in — kinda — for the most popular baby names of 2017. Now that we're just over halfway through the year, Nameberry is sharing the biggest names of 2017 thus far — calculated by looking at which names were most viewed since January in conjunction with the current baby name trends — and unlike in previous years, there's actually a bit of change happening up in the top slots.

In the boys' section, Asher has reclaimed the top spot from Ezra, which moved down to the fourth spot, and within the top 100 boys' names, nearly a fifth are new compared to 2016's list. In the girls' corner, Olivia is still reigning supreme; however, new to the top 10 are Evelyn, Penelope, and Eleanor, and the top 100 is seeing some surprising new monikers such as Saskia and Ines.
