Most popular baby names for 2013

From the Social Security Administration, via USA TODAY, here they are:

Noah ended Jacob’s 14-year reign as the top baby name for boys in 2013, while Sophia was the most popular name for girls for the third straight year, the Social Security Administration announced Friday.

Jacob slipped to third; Liam was second. Among girls, Emma and Olivia ranked second and third, respectively.

The list — released annually just before Mother’s Day — is the most complete of the popular baby name lists because parents supply the information when they apply for their child’s Social Security number. New parents in 2013 applied for a number for 4 million babies, the federal agency says.
