Full Answer

The BabyCenter is an online resource for everything related to the development of babies. They took data from more than half a million site users, as well as from the U.S. Government Social Security Administration, to determine the following as the top 10 baby names of 2014 for boys and girls in the United States. The list combines names that sound the same but use different spellings, such as the names Sophia and Sofia, and displays the most popular spellings of each name.

Girls

  • Sophia
  • Emma
  • Olivia
  • Ava
  • Isabella
  • Mia
  • Zoe
  • Lily
  • Emily
  • Madelyn

Boys

  • Jackson
  • Aiden
  • Liam
  • Lucas
  • Noah
  • Mason
  • Ethan
  • Caden
  • Jacob
  • Logan

The only changes in these baby names as opposed to the 2013 list are that Madelyn took the tenth spot and edged out the name Chloe, which was tenth in 2013 for girls, and Caden and Logan replace the names Jayden and Jack from 2013 for boys. Names such as Emma, Olivia, Sophia, and Jacob have been on the list for at least the last 3 years.
