Babies! They’re all over the place! It seems like a new A-list celebrity is announcing a pregnancy every other week, and even Kate Middleton was revealed to be preggers just yesterday. While I may not have any interest in kids at this point in my life, it’s still fun and interesting to hear what names are trending at any given time. And now the list of 2012’s most popular baby names has been released! Check out the top ten boy and girl names by clicking here!

Girls’ Names

  1. Sophia
  2. Emma
  3. Olivia

Some of these are hardly surprising. While they’re not bad names, I can’t even count how many Aidens, Jadens, Olivias and Avas I’ve encountered in the past few years. (Fun fact: I actually have younger cousins named Noah, Sophie, Olivia and Ava, which are all on the list in some form. And the first three are all from the same aunt and uncle!) I don’t know if I’ll ever even have kids, but I imagine naming them is pretty fun. However, parents should probably consult lists like this first if they want to pick unique monikers!
