Top Baby Names of 2013 – and What to Expect in 2014
Do you know a Sophia? How about a Jackson?

The top 10 boy’s names are:
This is all very interesting…but, what can we expect in 2014?
The Social Security Administration tracks name popularity, so we can see which names have experienced the largest jumps in popularity in recent years. Here are my thoughts:
- Pop culture seems to be playing a role (with names like Arya from Games of Thrones and Rosalie from Twilight).
- Strong, masculine names for boys are getting lots of love (Major, King, Maverick, Remington).
- Names ending in -lyn or -lynn are all the rage for the girls (Raelynn/Raelyn, Marilyn, Adelynn).
- Names ending in -i are becoming quite popular for the boys (Ari, Armani, Gianni)
So, what do you think? Will Arya become the next Sophia? Can Major defeat the likes of Jackson or Aiden?
