In 2021, the SSA reported that the top five names for boys included Liam, Noah, Oliver, Elijah and James. Girl names in the top five were Olivia, Emma, Charlotte, Amelia and Ava.

Since 1997, the SSA has released an annual list of the previous year’s most popular names for boys and girls.

In addition to top names, the SSA also tracks popular names by state and changes in popularity. The data is sourced directly from Social Security card applications.

Kilolo Kijakazi, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, said in a statement, "Just like your name, Social Security is with you from day one. One of the first things parents do for their newborn is get them a Social Security number. That makes Social Security the ultimate source for the most popular baby names each year."
