A new name has trended on the top of the 'Boy' name list this year, and knocked a popular favorite down a notch.

According to BabyCenter, Noah moved Liam out for the top slot, and Mateo moved up from number 11 to number 5 on the list!


Olivia still seems to be a popular and ever-steady girl name as number one, same as 2021 held, but Isabella is moving up. Charlotte was at number 6 in 2021 but now in slot number 9.

Gender-neutral names are of course wildly popular still, with Grayson and Parker being names traditionally seen for boys but more girls bearing, while Harper and Luna being seen on more boys than in past years.
