List of top baby names for 2017 released

The Top Baby Names of 2017 have been released.

Noah and Emma have topped the official most popular baby name list for the past three years. But according to BabyCenter, a website dedicated to all things parenting and pregnancy-related, that could change for 2017.

The site released its Top 100 Baby Names of 2017 with Sophia continuing to dominate as the most popular name for girls for the eighth year running. Jackson tops the list for boys for fifth year in a row.

Disney worked its magic this year, with more parents naming their daughters Moana and Belle. Colors and Mother Nature were also big influencers — River, Willow and Storm for girls and Hazel, Ember and Cloud for boys.

The list is based on the names of more than 500,000 babies born in 2017 to parents registered on the BabyCenter website. It is different from the Social Security Administration’s annual baby name list, which is based on the most popular names on birth certificates.

Our morning guys, Steve and Jeff did not make the 2017 list of most popular baby names, although Liam, Noah, Aiden, Lucas, Caden, Grayson, Mason, Elijah, and Logan were part of the Top 10 boys names.

As far as the girls go, Olivia, Emma, Ava, Isabella, Mia, Aria, Riley, Zoe, and Amelia were all part of the Top 10 Most popular girls names.
