At the Baby Name Institute we are about examining baby name trends. However, sometimes it easy to overlook the three biggest factors when it comes to naming variation. Location, location, location.
There is quite a large amount of geographic diversity. Although some names bounce around the top ten in most states, there is a lot of movement. The top spot across the 50 states for boy names is claimed by 10 different names: Benjamin
, and Wyatt
. Among girl names the top spot is claimed by eight names: Ava
, and Olivia
. In 1950 there wasn't as much
diversity in names and that is reflected in the geographic diversity as well.
