Every Parent can relate to the excitement, anxiety, and analytic process of deciding on the perfect name for their beautiful new bundle of joy! The Social Security Administration lists the most popular baby names, searchable by state and year. This is not only really interesting (if you ask us), but also a great resource for discovering new names you may not have thought of.
