Here are 2018's most popular baby names


Whereas Hollywood frequently opts for unique monikers such as Apple, True and Suri for their new bundles of joy, it seems that most American parents take a more traditional approach to naming their child.

As we near the end of the year, BabyCenter has released its annual list of the year's most popular baby names for boys and girls. Coming as a surprise to absolutely no one, Sophia held her spot as the top name for girls for the ninth year in a row, while Jackson maintained his number one ranking for the 6th year in a row.

While the monikers included on both the girls' and boys' lists were similar to past years, there were some notable shakeups. Logan and Zoe did not make it to this year's top ten and were instead replaced by Oliver and Layla. Furthermore, Everly, Leo, Isla and Carson were some of the year's "fastest climbers."

However, it is worth noting that food-related and "Zen" monikers seem to be an increasing trend for new parents. Kiwi is up 40 percent, while Saffron is up 31 percent. Names such as Peace and Harmony grew a notable amount as well, increasing to 66 percent and 15 percent, respectively.

The ranking was assembled with the help of nearly 740,000 parents who shared their baby's name.
