Winona Social Security District Manager

"Based on more than 4.2 million Social Security card applications for children born last year, mothers and fathers have picked Emily and Jacob as the most popular baby names for the eighth year in a row," said Commissioner Astrue. "I invite everybody to visit our website to view the new list."

Please click on the Most Popular Baby Names link at Social Security's website -- www.socialsecurity.gov -- to see the top baby names for 2006. The top ten boys and girls names for 2006 are:

Boys:

2) Michael

3) Joshua

4) Ethan

5) Matthew

6) Daniel

7) Christopher

8) Andrew

9) Anthony

10) William

Girls:

1) Emily

2) Emma

3) Madison

4) Isabella

5) Ava

Emily has been the most popular female name each year since 1996. Jacob has been the top male name since 1999. Sophia is new to the top ten for the first time and William returns after a one year absence. Elvis lives on at number 761.

In addition to a list of the 1,000 most popular baby names for 2006, there is a list of the most popular baby names for each state. Also, there is a list of the top 100 names for twins born in 2006. Jacob and Joshua are again the most popular twin's names.

Social Security started compiling baby name lists in 1997. Today, the Social Security website offers lists of baby names for each year since 1880.
