These pictures tell you what the most popular baby names by state are. Both boys and girls names are depicted and it shouldn't be a surprise on what they most popular names are. The top five boys names are Jacob, Mason, Ethan, Noah and William. The top five girls name are Sophia, Emma, Isabella, Olivia and Ava.
I was originally supposed to be named either Sara or Ashley but my parents went with Jennifer because they felt it was a better fit for my last name. It is interesting how certain names can be so popular for periods of time before a different name takes over.
For example, Emma was extremely popular for years so it is interesting that Sophia has taken over the top spot.
