You often don't realize how popular your baby's name is until after they enter preschool or kindergarten and there are 5 kids in the class with the same name.

Or maybe you realized it a little sooner when you were at the park and you called for your child and 5 other kids turned around.

Certain names are way more popular than others. It's interesting to see the different trends when it comes to baby names.

The Social Security Administration just released the most popular baby names in 2023. reports that this year marks the 7th year in a row that Liam has topped the list for boys’ names. It is also the 5th consecutive year that Olivia has topped the list for girls’ names.

There's so much to consider when choosing the perfect name. Are you looking for a more traditional name or trendy? Or maybe you're naming your baby after a family member or there's a name you love from your favorite TV show.
