WASHINGTON (AP) – When it comes to baby names, Americans seem to be somewhat united: Emma and Noah are tops. And don’t name your kid Isis.
For the second year in a row, Emma and Noah top the annual list of top baby names. That’s the third year at No. 1 for Noah and the second in a row for Emma, which was also No. 1 in 2008.
The Social Security Administration released its annual list of top baby names Friday, and the top five names for girls and for boys in 2015 remain unchanged from the year before.
One major change is the name Isis. After the name emerged as an acronym for the extremist group Islamic State, it dropped completely off the list.
