WASHINGTON (AP) — Dutton and Renly are on the rise, but not as well as Liam and Olivia, who topped the list of baby names in the US last year.
The Social Security Administration released its annual list on Friday. The agency tracks baby names in each state based on Social Security card applications, going back to 1880.
It’s the sixth year in a row that Liam has topped the list. Olivia has reigned since she took Emma’s place four years ago. Emma is second.
Charlotte is the third most popular girl name, followed by Amelia, Sophia, Isabella, Eva, Mia, Evelyn and Luna. In terms of boy names, Liam is followed by Noah, Oliver, James, Ilya, William, Henry, Lucas, Benjamin and Theodore.
Luna is the only rookie to break into the top 10 ahead of Harper.
The agency has been compiling this list since 1997 and often reveals the influence pop culture has on baby name trends. The blockbuster “Yellowstone” has clearly made an impact on new parents. The new western starring Kevin Costner came out in his 2018, and since then there have been characters in baby names.
Dutton has moved up to 835th on the Social Security List, up 986th from 2021. This is the surname of a fictional family in the series, including Costner’s John Dutton. Dutton is the fastest rising name in the Social Security rankings.
Another Dutton name follows the real Dutton as a star with a bullet in the baby name. Casey, like the show’s Casey John Dutton, climbed from 1,077 the previous year to 587. Luke Grimes plays Casey.
Lip, also from Yellowstone, got a lot of attention with his name but didn’t make the top 1,000 social security companies. Cole Hauser’s Rip Wheeler borders on Dutton as John’s son-in-law.
Other names on the rise as baby boy names: Chosen, Khaza, Eithan. For girls, Renly is followed by Nelia, Arlette, Georgina, and Amiri.
According to the latest data from the Social Security Administration, 3.64 million babies were issued Social Security cards in the United States last year, up slightly from 2021.
