Baby Names

It's been said that a person's name is by far the sweetest sound they will hear. That may be true, but have you ever wondered how many others bear your name? Is yours common or is it unique? How have names changed over the years? Are you searching for the perfect name for an expected new member of the family?

Each year, the federal Social Security Administration compiles a list of baby names from the birth certificates of babies born in the United States.

To search top baby names by year, state or decade, visit the Social Security Administration’s website.

The Center for Health Statistics Annual Report Volume 1 also includes Oregon's top baby names for that year.
