What's Your Name, Baby?

December 26, 2011

Baby BlocksThe list of Arizona's most popular baby names of 2011 is in -- from Phoenix, KJZZ's Lynn Kelly has the story...

The Arizona Department of Health Services released the list and Jacob and Isabella remain at the top of the heap.  Over 500 girls were named Isabella this year, and about 380 boys were named Jacob. It's the fifth year in a row that Isabella has been the state's most popular girl's name and the third for Jacob.

Just behind Isabella on the list are Sophia, Mia, Emma and Olivia. Trailing behind Jacob are Anthony, Daniel, Michael and Angel.

The department says that the only newcomer to the list of the 20 most popular girl names was Evelyn, while five new names came into play for the boys' list: Mason, Benjamin, Liam, Isaac and Matthew.

Again missing off the list - for KJZZ, I'm Lynn Kelly.
