Michigan families have been welcoming new family members all year. The arrival of a newborn child is amazing. What are parents naming their new Michigander in 2023?
My son will be 11 on October 18th. I remember brainstorming with his mom about what we should name him. I jokingly said "CARL". Not that I have anything against the name Carl, it's an old school name that seemed obsure. We tossed a few ideas around until we decided on his name. It has sentimental meaning to both of us.
Sometimes people name their children weird names. I met a person once with the legit, legal name, King Ham. Naming your child is someting you get to do once, unless you want to play games changing their name legally throughout the course of their life. The best idea is to decide on something that you'll be happy to say every time you talk to your child. Who cares what other people think about your child's name?
Names is the group that did the nerd work. Here's their methodology:
Each year, the Social Security Administration publishes the totals for the first names from all Social Security card applications for births that occurred in the US since 1880. The publication is the most complete record of first name usage in the United States. Because Social Security can take quite a while to compile data on the most popular baby names for each year, we've used data on the actual births in recent years to predict the most popular baby names of 2023. Our formula looks at the most 5 most recent years worth of data from the Social Security Administration to detect any trends.
We know that the nerds have shown up and the data has been analyzed. What are the top 10 baby names in 2023?
