According to New Jersey’s Department of Health, the most popular baby names in the state in 2016 were Olivia and Liam.
Here are New Jersey’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2016:
In 2015, the top names were Isabella and Liam.
There were no replacements in the girl’s top ten, but in the boys’ top ten, Lucas replaced Benjamin (now 12th).
These rankings are almost identical to the SSA’s 2016 rankings for New Jersey, except for Olivia being #1. On the national list, Mia and Olivia are tied, and because the SSA breaks ties alphabetically, Mia ends up in the #1 spot by default.
