It’s that time again. Every May, the Top 1000 baby names are released to the delight of all of us name nerds. Here are the Top Ten boys and girls.

TOP TEN GIRLS
The one thing the Social Security office doesn’t do is combine spellings of the same name (ex. Chloe/Khloe), which I think they should do. Sometimes there are big changes when you add them up.
Here’s the combined spellings Top Ten. We have a new #1 name.
Here’s the Top Ten combined spellings for the Girls. The top names stayed the same, but Zoey and Aubrey moved up into the top ten.
What do you think? Where do your favorites lie on the list? Anything you’re surprised by?
***Note: I added this up pretty quickly so just know that it is more accurate than the social security’s list, but I’m going to double check my math. 🙂
EDIT: Michael is out, Kayden is in. Kayden is ranked #93 on the list, but when you add up Caden, Caiden, Cayden, Kaden, Kaiden, & Kayden it jumps up to #9. Remember, spelling always counts. 🙂
EDIT: I forgot to count Maison so Mason moves above Liam.
