With 2009 now in full swing I thought it would be a good time to bring to your the list of last year’s most popular baby names. Not many changes to the list, a lot of the names that have topped the list in recent years are still safely on the list.

Girls

  1. Emma
  2. Sophia
  3. Madison
  4. Isabella
  5. Olivia
  6. Ava
  7. Madeline
  8. Addison
  9. Hailey
  10. Lily

Boys

  1. Aiden
  2. Jayden
  3. Ethan
  4. Jacob
  5. Caden
  6. Jackson
  7. Noah
  8. Jack
  9. Logan
  10. Matthew

As always I will be anxious to see what names make the big list this year.

Did you have a baby last year? What name did you give your child, was it in the top 10?

    I named my son Aidan…born in Nov 08
    I didn’t know it was so popular, but I fell in love with it and we named him Aidan anyway.
    Changed the ‘e’ to an ‘a’ and if he does have a ton of other boys with the same name hopefully the ‘a’ with differentiate him.
    The weird thing about it all is that St. Aidan died on my birthday and we had no idea, so that in itself tells us it was meant to be his name. :)

  • Sharon,

    It sounds like it was meant to be!! I love that name for a boy, very handsome and strong sounding.
