Top 100 Most Popular Baby Names in the United States for 2013

From the data gathered by the Social Security Administration, these were the top 100 baby boy and baby girl names in the U.S. for 2013. For the first time in 50 years neither Michael or Jacob was the top boy's name!

Americans are also going for a decidedly British trend, based on Downton Abbey's popularity perhaps? Just like Twilight spurred a surge in the name Bella for girls, Liam has strong roots in England as a boy name. Maybe life does imitate art after all.
