Fast Facts: Most Popular Baby Names of 2013 (USA) Released

From the Social Security Administration:

Noah and Sophia are America’s most popular baby names for 2013. First time atop the list is Noah, the first new boys name at number one since 1960 other than Jacob or Michael, and the third straight year for Sophia. This is huge news in the world of baby names with Noah rising to the top, unseating Jacob. Proving to be America’s favorite before the 2014 Russell Crowe movie Noah climbed atop the box office charts! There is only one new name in the top 10 this year—Daniel, but he has been there before. Also, be on the lookout for another Sophia crawling up the list—Sofia with an “f” has reached her highest spot ever at number 13.
