Jacob has been the most popular name for boys in the U.S. for 14 years.  But after 14 years on top, there's a new most popular name.

 

 

The Social Security Administration just released the top baby names for 2013, and the most popular name for boys was . . . NOAH.

 

 

That's the first time since 1960 that the most popular boys name wasn't Jacob or Michael.  David came in first in 1960.

 

 

The top 10 boys names for 2013 are:  Noah, Liam, Jacob, Mason, William, Ethan, Michael, Alexander, Jayden, and Daniel.

 

 

The most popular name for girls in 2013 was Sophia, for the third year in a row.

 

 

The top 10 girls names for 2013 are:  Sophia, Emma, Olivia, Isabella, Ava, Mia, Emily, Abigail, Madison, and Elizabeth.
