The Social Security Administration’s list of the top baby names of the past decade has been released. Technically, it doesn’t cover the entire decade; the list starts at 2010 but only goes through 2018, but the SSA says the list is a “good indication of the ultimate rankings for the complete decade.”

They haven’t issued the state by state list yet, so I don’t know how New Jersey’s list will compare, but here is the national list:

Boys names:

Rank, Name, Number
1. Noah - 163,657
2. Liam - 152,994
3. Jacob - 152,020
4. Mason - 146,079
5. William - 145,893
6. Ethan - 137,512
7. Michael - 134,043
8. Alexander - 130,477
9. James - 126,060
