Baby names: Popular baby names for 2001


In the state-by-state Top Fives, there were some renegade names. “Westerners tend to favor cowboy names and Biblical names for boys,” says Rosenkrantz. Ethan makes the Top Five in Idaho, North and South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. Hunter - number 35 nationally - is in the second spot in North Dakota, while Dylan ranks in South Dakota and Montana. Noah is number two in Hawaii.

Kayla, meanwhile, is number one in DC and number 4 in Delaware, while Destiny - one of the word names of the future predicted in Beyond Jennifer & Jason, Madison & Montana - is number 3 in our nation’s capitol.
