Most Popular Baby Names of 2011 – The Results Are In!

"Why are there FIVE other JACOBS in my class, Mom?"

The Social Security Administration has released the most popular baby names from 2011.  Honestly.  I guess American women are more Team Jacob, since Edward is nowhere to be seen on the list.  And listen here!  I named my son Alexander over 28 years ago.

I’m surprised Mia is so popular.  I do love that name, I’ll admit.


1. Jacob

2. Mason

3. William

4. Jayden

5. Noah

6. Michael

7. Ethan

8. Alexander

9. Aiden

10. Daniel


1. Sophia

5. Ava

6. Emily

7. Abigail

10. Chloe

Is your kid’s name on the list?  (I apologize in advance if your son is named Jacob.)  Nice backpedaling, yes?
