Here Are The Most Popular Baby Names Of 2017

Is your name on the list?

With 2017 coming to a close, we're looking back on the most popular trends of the year: from our favorite songs, most Instagrammed cities, top hashtags, and even the top baby names of the year. 

BabyCenter, a pregnancy and parenting digital site, recently released their list of the most popular baby names of 2017. The site collected the data from over 500,000 parents and generated the 100 most common names for boys and girls.

In a video for the publication, pop culture and style contributor Sarah Bernard reported that "37 percent of BabyCenter moms say they agonized over their name choice." 23 percent say they took eight months or more to finally decide.

So, for those searching for the perfect name, perhaps the list below will help provide a little inspiration.
