Popular Baby names in my state.

I googled “popular baby names by state,” and was very surprised to see how different the top 100 names were here vs. the Nameberry list of popular names. Some of the surprises:

For Boys:

[name_m]Zander[/name_m]/[name_m]Xander[/name_m] - #93/103
[name_m]Nixon[/name_m] - #68
[name_m]Boston[/name_m] - #76
[name_m]Beckham[/name_m] - #97
[name_m]Ryker[/name_m] - #12

For Girls:
[name_u]Ruby[/name_u] - #16
[name_u]Paisley[/name_u] - #18
[name_u]Emery[/name_u] - #50
[name_f]Elsie[/name_f] - #54
[name_f]Lola[/name_f] - #85

And I was very sad to see that [name_u]Owen[/name_u] is even MORE popular here than it is everywhere else (#16 :(!!), since my mother basically already has me committed to giving that name to my first son if I have one…

Are there any names that are significantly more popular in your state than on average?

I’m surprised at seeing [name_f]Elsie[/name_f] on the list. That was my grandmother’s name-she came to the US in 1912. [name_u]Haven[/name_u]'t heard of too many Elsies-glad it’s making a comeback :slight_smile:
