BabyNameQuiz_Boys23bJust delivered! Social Security is happy to announce the arrival of the top baby names of 2015!

For almost 20 years, we’ve been the authority on the most popular baby names based on requests for Social Security numbers for newborns. We reveal the top names for boys and girls each year, and our records date back to the 1880s! The names show us how America’s trends and culture have diversified, and how our choices have broadened.

What makes a baby name popular? Trends in new baby names often follow popular culture, influenced by favorite characters in books or movies, as well as religious meanings. The top names of 2015, Noah and Emma, kept their top spots from 2014! New to the top ten for 2015, and for the first time ever, are Benjamin and Harper.

Top baby names for 2015, 1. noah, emma 2. liam, olivia, 3. mason, sophia, 4 jacob, ava, 5 william, isabella 6 ethan, mia 7 james, abigail 8, alexander, emily 9 michael, charlotte 10, benjamin, harper

No matter where the inspiration for your child’s name came from, you can rest easy knowing that we’re there for your child from day one.

When you have a baby, we’ll issue him or her a unique Social Security number soon after birth. They’ll need their number throughout many important stages in their life, beginning with when you claim them on your tax return. It’ll also be useful if you need to apply for benefits for your child. We offer a wide range of resources for families with children. If your child has a severe disability, we have programs and benefits to help supplement the added costs of caring for them.

The birth of a child is a special time for families. We’re with you and your child through life’s journey, starting from when you choose his or her special name.

You can see the top names of 2015 and view our extensive list on our website. Check back on May 12, 2016 to see the most popular baby names of 2015 for your state or territory.
