According to the County Clerk of Knox County, Illinois, the most popular baby names in 2019 were Charlotte and Benjamin.
A total of 689 babies were born in the county in 2019. Here are the top names per gender:
- Charlotte – 5 baby girls
- Deliah, Eleanor, Ellie, Hope – 4 each
- Ava, Caroline, Cora, Evelyn, Everley, Lilly, Molly, Paisley – 3 each
- Benjamin – 6 baby boys
- Jeremiah – 5
- Elijah & Liam – 4 each
- Charles, Christopher, Grayson, Isaac, Jace, Lincoln, Matthew, Noah, Parker – 3 each
The name Deliah really stands out here. Only a couple dozen baby girls are named Deliah per year nationally, so it’s very curious to see four Deliahs pop up in a single county.
