The Social Security Administration just released its annual list of most popular names.
There are no big shockers in this year's top 10: Jacob (for the 14th year in a row!) and Sophia continue their reign as the top boy and girl names. The other slots are generally taken by the same names year after year.
However, Elizabeth knocked off Chloe and cracked the top 10 this year, no doubt a result of royal baby mania. The classic name is said to be on Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby girl shortlist. Surprisingly, William fell two spots.
While the top 10 is largely unchanged, there are some intriguing trends lower on the list. The name rising with a bullet is Major, which is often a military tribute, but is also the name of Home by Novogratz stars Cortney and Robert Novogratz's seventh (and youngest) child.
Arya also rose almost 300 slots, a nod to America's obsession with HBO's Game of Thrones. Arya is the daughter of one of the leaders of the Seven Kingdoms in the hit series.
And the name of Kourtney Kardashian's little cutie -- which was the only new addition to the top 10 last year -- is still holding strong in its number two spot.
We can't say we're shocked; after all, some of the baby name trends we called back in January are represented here: The Letter "L" (Liam) and vintage granny names like Elizabeth. The rhyming names Aiden and Jayden continue to make a strong showing, as do biblical names like Jacob, Noah and Abigail.
