Here are some interesting observations regarding the popular men's names mentioned in the above table. The top 5 names for men and boys are Jacob, Michael, Joshua, Mathew and Cristopher. The interesting thing is that all these mens names have references in the Holy bible. You can therefore see a strong trend towards choosing boys names with meaning. The mens name Joseph, comes in at 9 but you would expect it to rank a bit higher. Ryan coming in at 15 is a boys (men's) name that is very popular in countries aside from the U.S too. You will also notice that men's names starting with 'J' are quite prominent. The list of top mens names begins with 'J' for Jacob and the entire list has generous names that start with the alphabet 'J'. You can find boys names beginning with 'J' all through the list, even the 99 spot is held by Jesse which starts with a 'J'. There is another alphabet that stands before many mens names and that is 'A'. Step to 'B' and you will find that not many men have a name that begins with the alphabet 'B'. Alphabets that are very scarce or totally absent on the list for men's names are 'X', 'Y' and 'Z'.

Let's move the list of ladies names and try to unravel some interesting facts. Emily, Madison and Emma are the top three. You might expect the ladies names Ema and Emily to be very popular in the U.K but they are good performers in the U.S too. At number 6 in the top ladies names list is Abigail, very interesting because it is not often that you come across a lady or a girl with this name. If you ever wondered what this interesting girl's name meant we have the answer for you. The name Abigail has a bibical reference and means 'source of joy'. Kayla at 20 is another surprise entry, probably heard of just one or two people with this name. The name Destiny at number needs little explanation, but it does seem a bit philosophical when used as a male or female name. Look at the girls name Kylie at 65, then glance at the popular mens names and move to number 53 which is Kyle. One wonders whether a family with a son and daughter would prefer to have both these names in their family.

While naming babies is not given much importance in some families, it is not uncommon for parents to do a lot of searching and research before choosing a name for their baby boy or baby girl. Of the above list of popular male and female names in the U.S, here are the very interesting ones. We have extracted the information from the above table. Interesting names for boys or men include Hunter, Tristan, Caleb and Devin. The list of girls or ladies name has much more to offer in terms of interest. These names include, Brianna, Navaeh (tough to pronounce), Jada, Paige, Faith, Kayla and Chloe.

We do hope that you have had a good time reading this report on popular American names. It is quite common to change a name in some Asian countries. For example, in Thailand both ladies and men often change names to get a new name that is belived to bring good luck and prosperity to them. It might be interesting to see the change in naming trends over a period of 8 to 10 years. While current situatuons and events might bring in a shift in name preferences, you might observe a near permanent fix on the 10 ten list for ladies and men.
