Top 100 US Baby names 2006

by Dr Michael Araco

For those interested in the latest trends in popular baby names check out the list below.

For the boys, blockbuster name of the late 20th century “Michael” has slipped from 1 to 12 over the past decade.  ”Ben” has snuck into the list again at 97.  ”Aidan” to my suprise is at number one (does anyone know many Aidans?).  A number of biblical names such as “Joseph”, “Caleb” and “Noah” seem to be gaining ground and I wonder if this trend will continue.

For the girls the timeless classic “Emma” is holding number one position.  An Eric Clapton inspired 70’s song may be responsible for “Layla” sneaking in at number 91.  A personal favourite of mine “Madison” is doing remarkably well at 3rd position.  Personally I have an overwhelming urge to remove number 94 from the list as to me, “Camryn” looks like a spelling error.
