Last week, the agency announced the top names nationwide, with Liam and Olivia taking the top spots.

The Social Security Administration started compiling the annual baby names list in 1997, with names dating back to 1880. The lists are created by looking through the applications for social security that parents file at the time of their child’s birth. The lists are then published based on locality, including U.S. territories.
