North Carolina is home to lots of fun and different names. Parents in North Carolina often give their children names that are unique to the state. Lists of boy names include Linwood and Dewey, while lists of girl names include Queen and Nannie.
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, Names.Org used data on the actual births in recent years to predict the most popular baby names for 2022. Their formula looks at the five most recent years’ worth of data from the Social Security Administration to detect any trends. With their results, these are the predicted most popular baby names for 2022.
