Most Popular Baby Names of 2022

What are the most popular names of 2022? Below we have listed the top most popular baby names by year, as calculated from the names added to our users' favorite name lists. Our popularity lists tend to predict the U.S. Social Security baby names rankings by 1-3 years, because our members are naming future babies!

Note: Rankings combine the stats for different spellings of the same name, like Sophia and Sofia.

Typically, we see jumps (or declines) of two to three spots, but this year proves that people are ready for a change, and fast! Names for baby boys were far more likely to see differences than names for baby girls or gender-neutral names, as certain names jumped ten or more spots with one even elevating to number one. Check out this list of 2022's most popular baby names and be ready for lots of surprises!
