Best of the Decade: See Which Baby Names Dominated in the 2010s


Each year, the Social Security Administration (SSA) puts out its list of the top baby names from the previous year, but the organization also holds the data for the top names of various decades. As we’re about to close out another decade, we’re taking a look back at the baby names that dominated the charts between 2010 and 2019. (However, as the SSA won’t release its data for 2019 until early- to mid-2020, these names are all as of 2018. We don’t see the change in the list being too severe, as a grand total of 17 boy names and 15 girl names have made up the top 10 lists over the last nine full years!)

Scroll through to see the top baby names of the 2010s according to the data from the SSA.
