Parents-to-be expecting a baby in 2023 might be researching all the top baby names for their new arrival.

But new research from BabyCenter indicates what names are not going on the list.

The digital parenting resource examined the top 500 baby names registered by BabyCenter parents for babies born in 2021 and 2022. Top names for girls include Olivia, Emma and Charlotte; for baby boys, it's Liam, Noah and Oliver. BabyCenter also analyzed which names saw the steepest decline.

Baby names falling out of favor? Boy names that start with "K" — Khalid, Kameron, Kane, Kian, Kyle, and Kobe were among those that fell significantly.

Top drops for girls include the name Joy, which fell 112 spots from the previous year, and London, down 93 spots for girls, according to the website's data.
