Top names for babies in Alaska in 2020 released by Social Security Administration

The Social Security Administration has published its list of most-popular names for babies in every state for 2020.

For boys in Alaska, parents are going with Oliver, Liam, Elijah, and Theodore. William comes in at Number 5, with 35 Williams crawling around on living room floors this year. The name Aaron, once quite popular in Alaska, is now down at Number 94 on the list. There are no Waynes, Peters, or Josephs on the Top 100 list for Alaska baby boys.

For girls, it’s Amelia, Charlotte, Olivia, and Sophia. Ava is the Number 5 name for girls. Nowhere on the list is an Ashley or an Alexa, and Mary and Susan are also clearly out of fashion. But the old-school name Hazel, at Number 12 on the list, is making a comeback, with 24 Alaska baby girls bearing that first name in 2020. But the name Denali is nowhere to be found. But there are some names that do sound a bit like dog names.

The list from Social Security Administration can be sorted to look at the other states, where Oliver, Liam, Amelia, and Olivia make the list across the country, but regional differences can be spotted. For instance, in Washington state, Oliver and Olivia both hold the top spot, but in West Virginia, it’s Liam for boys and Harper for girls.

  • I’m waiting for Mabel and Brunhild to return.

  • I guess the lists are for the newly born. But there is absolutely no doubt that we have tens of thousands of new “Karens” here in Alaska.

  • Babies born this year and last year are very lucky lives! They all missed the abortion room! Hahaha
    Frankly babies most definitely lucky are anyone born after 1980. Your life is even most blessed if you were a baby born through a single mother of color! Unlike a woman who had the dad present, the single pregnant mother recieves unbelievably high amount of pressure to terminate the pregnancy. Even after she gives birth, she still raises the baby alone, and she not recognized for the things she does well but harshly criticized when her child acts up and making mistakes. (Criticizer: Well you know! The child has no father in the home). What about the church family?

    I hope I get to see babies born in 2030. I hope the experimental vaccine doesn’t have sterilization side effects on some children, women and men. That’ll be so sad.

  • The Social Security Administration has no legitimate business existing in the first place, but to spend other people’s money for the purpose of publishing a list like this is an insult to American taxpayers.

  • I’m waiting for the leftists to really get going with Hitler, Che, Pol Pot, and Stalin.

  • I guess they got tired of the ten million Megan’s

  • Gertrude? Butch?

  • Who cares?

  • I hate fads, and name fads in particular.

    At least there are no obviously male names on the girls’ name list, such as “Scout”.
    It would sound silly for a boy, but it abominable for a girl.

  • Dermot?
