“Logan” was the only new addition to any of the three lists since 2016, replacing “Michael” as the fourth most common boy’s name. However, some shifting occurred over the past year. “Olivia” was last year’s No. 1 baby girl name, but “Emma” jumped from fourth place to take the top spot. “Liam” and “Noah” traded spaces, while “Mason” was knocked down from spot No. 3 to fifth place.
