Texas' top 10 most popular baby names are in

The top 100 most popular baby names have been released by the Social Security Administration. (CC)

Met a baby Liam or Olivia lately? It wouldn't be uncommon as those are the top two baby names of the last year in Texas.

The Social Security Administration released its top baby names based on Social Security card application data. Here are the most common names.


Boys

  1. Liam
  2. Noah
  3. Mateo
  4. Elijah
  5. Sebastian
  6. Oliver
  7. Daniel
  8. Santiago
  9. Benjamin
  10. Alexander

Girls

  1. Olivia
  2. Emma
  3. Camila
  4. Isabella
  5. Mia
  6. Sophia
  7. Ava
  8. Amelia
  9. Sofia
  10. Charlotte


Compared to the year before, most of the names stayed consistently in the top 10 with some minor bumps in ranking. For boys, Oliver scooted its way up eight spots from the year before and Benjamin and Alexander kicked formerly top 10 ranked, Ethan and Jacob, out of the top. On the girls side, Emma got knocked down from its last year first place ranking and Charlotte worked its way to the top 10, kicking out Victoria.

A big announcement from Austonia

Howdy, and happy holidays.

I have some big news for you.

Austonia is now part of 6AM City, a fast-growing network of hyper-local newsletters across the country.

I’m proud to be telling you this, because 6AM City’s mission is very much like Austonia’s — a daily morning update on events, things-to-do and news, with an underlying mission of community building in the cities they serve.

If you’re not already subscribed, 6AM City’s Austin newsletter is called ATXtoday. One of its city editors is Laura Figi, who you’ll remember for her previous great work on Austonia’s newsletter.

I’ve been reading ATXtoday every day since it launched last year.

Starting this week, you’ll receive ATXtoday every morning and I’m confident it will become part of your daily wake up routine. Be sure to add hello@theatxtoday.com to your contact list (how to do that here).

Meantime let me thank you for your readership and support of Austonia, and convey my wishes for a great holiday season for you and those close to you.


Thank you,
