The Social Security Administration has released their list of the top baby names of 2015 and--drumroll please--they were Emma and Noah. Again.
In fact, the top three most popular names remained unchanged from last year with Liam and Mason taking the second and third spots for boys while Olivia and Sophia rounded out the top three for girls.
The most exciting--er well, the only-- thing that happened in the top five in 2015 was in the girls category where Ava overtook Isabella, becoming the fourth most popular girls name in the US.
Benjamin broke into the top ten in 2015, replacing Daniel, which fell to number twelve. Harper pulled a similar move, inching into the number ten spot for girls, exiling Madison to number eleven.

The Top 20 Boys Names of 2015
For boys, Wilder saw a serious jump of 360 spots, coming in at number 964. But the biggest climber last year was Riaan--a name that some may have never even heard of--which moved up an impressive 1360 places, landing at number 926.
For girls, there were also a few names that rocketed into the top 1,000 last year. Alaia made the most progress, shooting up the list to number 664, an increase of 2,012 points. Also of note was Adaline, which moved 1,029 spots to become number 364.
2015 also saw a few names whose popularity really plummeted. One name, however, took the cake for losing ground.
Isis, which was number 702 in 2014, fell dramatically last year, barely making it into the top 2,000. For obvious reasons, this name is bound to continue sinking in the future.
Speaking of less-than-lovable names, what about those that came in last?
According to the SSA, "For U.S. births in 2015, the top 1,000 names represent about 73 percent of all names." So--while those at the bottom of the list don't truly represent the least popular names in the US, they do offer some interesting insight.
