Can You Guess the Top Baby Names for 2022?
- Olivia and Liam are still the most popular baby names.
- Babycenter released its top names for 2022 and the two names, which also reigned in 2021, were on top again. The top five baby girl names all remained the same as last year.
- Emma was number two, followed by Amelia, Ava and Sophia.
- For boys, Liam remains on top, just barely edging out Noah. Oliver, Elijah and Mateo round out the top five.
- Watching Kevin Costner in “Yellowstone” has shown a huge rise in names related to the show and wild west. Dutton shot up more than 1,800 spots, while Kayce and Rip gained more than 500 and 300 spots. Names like Texas, Montana, Dakota, and Arizona are all up this year for both boys and girls.
- Elon is one of the fastest-falling baby names of 2022, dropping more than 450 spots – possibly due to the Twitter acquisition drama.
