When looking at the most common baby names for girls in 2017, it’s easy to see what’s hot with names for little girls: It’s all about that letter A.
Seven of the top 100 most popular American baby names for girls in 2018 ended with the letter A — and more than two dozen more names with a final A sound follow on the list. In total, 19 of the top 100 names start with the letter A.
Baby names that are also common words — including Autumn, Aria, Aurora, Nova, Piper, Paisley, Ruby, Lily, Violet, Grace, Harper and Brooklyn — were also big players in 2017. (There was also one everyday word spelled backward: Nevaeh, which reverses to Heaven.)
