What Are The Most Popular Washington State Baby Names In 2024?

I was one of those babies given a unique name at birth and I don't think my name has been on the popular list since the 1900's.

Did Your Name Make The List Of The Most Popular Names From 1960-2023?

It makes me sound like I'm eighty years old and I was named after my great-grandfather.

It took me a lot of years to come to like my name because as a kid it was one of those names that was easy to make fun of.

I recently did get a compliment at the eye doctor's office when the receptionist said she liked my name because it was unique.

 

So a new Social Security drop-down menu allows you to see the most popular baby names from 1960 to 2023

If you roll back to 1960, the most popular boy's name was David and the most popular girl's was Susan.

If you roll back to 1980, the most popular boy's name was Micheal and the most popular girl's was Jennifer.

If you roll back to 2000, the most popular boy's name was Jacob and the most popular girl's name for the time was Emily.

Times have changed and many names fluctuate in popularity and it's surprising to see some "older" names becoming popular again.
