Top names are Liam and Emma

The most popular baby names in Oklahoma are Liam for boys and Emma for girls. That’s according to the The Social Security Administration concerning  the most popular baby names in Oklahoma for 2016

The top five boys and girls names for 2016 in Oklahoma were:

Boys: 1. Liam, 2. Elijah, 3, Oliver, 4. Noah, 5. Mason

Girls: 1. Emma, 2. Olivia, 3. Ava, 4. Sophia, 5. Abigail

Nancy A. Berryhill, acting Commissioner of Social Security, announced this month that Noah and Emma were the most popular baby names in the United States.

The agency began compiling the baby name list in 1997, with names dating back to 1880.  At the time of a child’s birth, parents supply the name to the agency when applying for a child’s Social Security card, thus making Social Security America’s source for the most popular baby names.

In addition to each state’s top baby names (and names for U.S. territories), Social Security’s website has a list of the 1,000 most popular boys and girls names for 2016.
