Preferences and tastes for the baby's name in the United States change from year to year, depending on the fashions, but the common denominator when choosing the baby's name continues to be tradition, traditional names, of all life are those who prevail.
Thus, Sophia is the most popular name for newborn girls in the United States, while Jacob was the most favored for boys for the thirteenth consecutive year.
The list seems to be influenced by religion and TV shows. This has been demonstrated by the name Mason, which has climbed 10 places to become the second most popular name for newborn babies in 2011. Mason has also knocked Michael out of the top five for the first time in 63 years. Kourtney Kardashian, a star of television shows, gave birth in December 2009 to a boy whom she christened Mason, after a widely publicized pregnancy.
The musicality of names, as well as their origin and meaning, greatly influence parents when choosing a name for their child. The top five places for boy names on the list of most popular names in the United States is headed by Jacob, a name of Hebrew origin that means 'grabbed by the heel', followed by Mason in second place, third place is for William , the fourth is for Jayden and the fifth is for Noah.
Michael, a name of Hebrew origin, whose meaning is 'Who is like God', has been ousted to sixth place on the list, its lowest position since 1948, followed by Ethan, also of Hebrew origin, which means 'Strong and firm' . Alexander appears in seventh place, closely followed by Aiden and in tenth position Daniel, also of Hebrew origin, whose meaning is 'God is my Judge' and is currently ranked number 1 as the most popular baby name in Spanish.
Names for girls tend to be less stable, as they change every year, while those most requested for boys are more stable. William, for example, has been a popular male name for over 100 years and has never made it out of the top 20. Mason is an exception, making it into the Top 100 for the first time in 1997.
For girls, the name of Sophia has displaced Isabella for the first time, name of Italian origin of the Spanish Isabel. Its meaning is 'Consecrated by God.' and it was preferred by American families for their daughters for two years. As for girls, Sophia was also in the top 100 in 1997. Isabella was off the general list from 1949 to 1990.
Emma is third on the list and is also a name of German origin, meaning 'universal'. Follow him Olivia and Ava, also of German origin, whose meaning is 'a bird'. In sixth place, we find Emily. They are followed by Abigail and Madison, the latter is a name of German origin that means 'Daughter of Mateo.' The last two positions are held by Mia and Chloe.
