2014 Top Baby Names Inspired By TV

KSAL StaffDecember 3, 2014

There will be a lot of Sophias and Jacksons in the classrooms of the future. Parenting website BabyCenter said Tuesday that those are the most popular names for girls and boys born in 2014.

According to the organization, it may be her fifth year to rule, but Sophia isn’t the only one feeling queenly. Emma and Olivia join her in the top three for the third year in a row. Madelyn broke in to rev up the competition, joining the top girls’ list at number 10 and knocking out Chloe, who held the position last year.

While Jackson is basking in the spotlight for his second straight year, two of his J cousins have fallen into the shadows. Jayden and Jack were edged out of the top 10 in 2014. Replacing them are Caden, who clambered up from number 11 to number 8, and Logan, who loped into position 10.

Other popular baby names include those inspired by television shows like “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black.”

The website also lists the most surprising baby names, which includes names like Amore, Rhythm, Finnick and Zeppelin.
