The Social Security Administration has ranked the top baby names of 2009:

http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/babynames/

What I love about this site is in the bottom right corner you can check the popularity of a name over time (for instance, over the last 30 years!) to see how its ranking has changed.

My son's name, Chase, was ranked at 61 in popularity in 2009, but when I was born 30 years ago his name was only ranked at 660! But my name was ranked 4 when I was born, and now is ranked 137.

It is so interesting how the name trends come and go!
