Social Security Lists Most Popular Baby Names In Washington

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON - Each year, Social Security announces the top baby names for boys and girls, based on Social Security card applications for babies born in the previous year.  If you have children or you're friends or relatives with those who do, chances are you might know a few babies with the "in" names.

This year, the most popular babies in the playpen are Jacob and Sophia, followed by Mason and Isabella.  You can visit them in their online "crib" at www.socialsecurity.gov/babynames.

In Washington State The ranking was a little different - 

 

Boys                          Girls

Mason                        Sophia

Liam                           Olivia

Alexander                   Emma

Jacob                         Isabella

At the website, you also can see other lists of popular baby names.  For example, you can search for the 1,000 most popular names of a decade, the five most popular names of the past century, or search for the most popular names in your state.  You can even get popular baby names for twins.  Plug in any name — including your own — to see where it comes in on the list.

However, Jacob and Sophia's page isn't just about baby names.  Find out about getting a Social Security number for your baby and what every parent should know about Social Security.  Learn about benefits for children and grandchildren, and plan your family's financial future.

You also can link to information about having a healthy pregnancy, taking care of your newborn, and childproofing your home. Need to read up on childhood immunizations, food stamps, or other nutrition assistance programs for families with children?  The links are there, along with more information than there are gifts at a baby shower.

When people think about Social Security, they often think of the retirement years.  But Social Security is there throughout your life — from the day a child is named.  Social Security's popular Baby Names page has a lot to offer.  See for yourself at www.socialsecurity.gov/babynames today.
