Nameberry has released their list of the Most Popular Baby Names in 2017.
For the second year in a row the girl's name Olivia is in the top spot.
The most popular name for boys is a throwback to one of the greatest characters in literary history...Atticus. (...Like Atticus Finch from To Kill A Mockingbird.)
According to Nameberry, Attitus made a herculean leap to the top spot as it was ranked no. 360 in 2016.
Nameberry compiled their annual list by measuring which names attracted the largest share of the website’s page views, versus how many babies received the name. It’s a gauge of parents’ interest in baby names and a predictor of which names will become more popular in the future.
