Emma! Jacob! Sophia! Michael! Olivia! Mason! William!

Do you ever hear your child's name ring out at the playground — from the mouths of parents you don't know? Your child's name may be extremely popular in your neck of the woods, but that's not necessarily the case in other parts of the country.

With the release of the U.S. Social Security Administration's list of the top 100 baby names for each state, it's now super easy to find out where little one is more likely to be the only Emma or Mason on the playground.*

Check out the SSA's tool to discover the most common and unusual names in your state.

*Answers: for Emma, District of Columbia, and for Mason, Arizona.
