Experts have unveiled the most popular baby names for boys and girls, according to proprietary data from BabyCenter, an online media company under Everyday Health Group – Pregnancy & Parenting (EHG P&P).

“BabyCenter’s baby name reports are unique because we’re able to analyze self-reported data from hundreds of thousands of our members in real time,” Christine Mattheis, Group VP of content and brand solutions at BabyCenter, shared in a statement with Fox News Digital.
“This enables our team to spot trends much faster than baby name reports that rely on data from the Social Security Administration, which is only reported once annually for the prior year.”
The biggest shock within the 2023 data report is that the name Liam has been overthrown as the top name after ruling the lists from 2019 to 2023.

For the first time in five years, Liam has been dethroned and Noah is now the No. 1 boy’s name — the two names have swapped first and second place.
The name Noah has variations that exist in at least 30 different languages: Noé (French), Noa (Persian), Nooh (Hindi) and Naoi (Irish), the baby name team shared.
Ezra is a Hebrew name that means “help” or “helper.” It derives from the lengthy Hebrew moniker “Azaryahu,” which means “God helps,” the naming website noted.
For the first time ever, Ezra has made a place for itself on the top 10 list of most popular boys’ names.

“Registrations for Ezra rose quickly in the second half of this year, causing [the name] to leap from No. 12 to No. 9,” BabyCenter reported.
The top list of boys’ names has been taken over by the letter “L.”
Half of the names that make up the top 10 most popular boys’ names begin with the letter L: Liam (No. 2), Lucas (No. 6), Levi (No. 7), Leo (No. 8) and Luca (No. 10).
“[These results are] making up the largest portion of names that start with a similar letter,” the BabyCenter commented.
The biggest single letter for girls’ names is “M,” which is rising in popularity, according BabyCenter’s data.
“BabyCenter saw spikes in registrations for the names Miley (up 501 spots), Mckinley (up 242 spots), Mavis and Milan (each up 228 spots), and Mallory (up 217 spots),” the parenting resource stated.
