2019 SSA Name List (Finally!)

After nearly 4 months of waiting the brand new 2019 SSA most popular list is out!!!! I am screaming and not going to lie I jumped off the couch so fast I made my mom concerned. Thanks to babynames.com for alerting me to the new list being out. If I'm being honest I did not believe it was really out at all and had to check and double check. A few weeks I ago I checked out of curiosity and had lost hope the list would be making an appearance any time soon. 

So without waiting any longer let's dive in to the much awaited name list starting with he top 19 most popular names. 






Boys
1. Liam
2. Noah
3. Oliver +2
4. William -1
5. Elijah +2
6. James -2
7. Benjamin -1
8. Lucas 
9. Mason
10. Ethan +2


Girls 
1. Olivia +1
2. Emma -1
3. Ava
4. Sophia +1
5. Isabella -1
6. Charlotte
7. Amelia +1
8. Mia -1
9. Harper 
10. Evelyn


Compared to last years list the boy names had move moving and grooving while the girl names only moved a spot if that. Yet when you take a look back at the movements of the top 10 in 2018 you will find that the top 5 girl names did not change at all last year. So in hindsight the girl names did have some big moves. The biggest move is the overtaking of Emma by Olivia for the number 1 spot. 

The only new comer to the top 10 was Ethan. He knocked out Logan. Surprisingly (or maybe not) Ethan last ranked in the top 10 in 2016 at #10 but prior to that Ethan ranked in the top 10 from 2002 to 2016 with his highest ranking being in 2009 and 2010 at #2. 

Let's look at some fun facts for the #1 names for 2019.

Liam
  • Has ranked #1 for 3 years now. 
  • The name first entered the top 10 in 2012
  • The name didn't enter the top 1000 until 1967 
Olivia
  • Has been in the #2 spot for the last 5 years
  • First entered the top 10 back in 2001 at #10 
  • Olivia has ranked in the top 1000 every year since 1880 

So what are your thoughts? Are you shocked the name list is out right now?
