Top baby names on the rise in 2016


(WRIC/ABC) — The results for the top baby names on the rise in 2016 are in.

Baby naming resource site Nameberry released a list of baby names gaining popularity with new parents this year.

For girls, the name Olivia took the top spot as most popular baby name in 2016. Olivia took the top spot from Charlotte, though Charlotte remains high on the list at number three this year.

Ezra remains the most popular baby name for boys. There wasn’t much movement in the Top 10 from previous year. Only two names were added to the list, including Levi and Wyatt, which replaced Jude and Jasper in 2016.

Nameberry uses Google Analytics to determine the most popular baby names.

The results are “based on the most-visited of the nearly 20 million views of our individual name pages in the first three months of this year,” said Nameberry creator Pamela Satran.
