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

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.
