Top Baby Names For Florida In 2012


MIAMI, Florida -- Jayden and Isabella are repeat champions as Florida’s most popular baby names for 2012, according to the Social Security Administration's top baby names for Florida which was released today.  

There are two new boys names in the top 10 for Florida this year -- Aiden and Liam replace Joshua and Daniel.  Sofia with an "f" bumped Chloe out of the top ten spot for girls. Sophia with a "ph" remained in the number two spot in 2012.


The Social Security Administration speculates that Liam’s new found success can be attributed to Liam Neeson’s recent major roles in “Battleship” and the popular “Taken,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” and “Clash of the Titans” franchises.


Social Security started compiling baby name lists in 1997, and the agency’s website offers lists of baby names for each year since 1880.  Social Security is America’s source for most popular baby names because parents supply this information to the agency when applying for a child’s Social Security number at the time of the child’s birth.
