THE most popular baby names this year have been revealed with Muhammad making the top ten in a coveted list for the first time in the US.
The parenting and pregnancy website compiled the names of babies born to around 600,000 registered U.S. users in 2019.
The Social Security Administration also makes a list, which pulls the names of all the babies born in the U.S.
The independent agency treats each spelling as a different name which differs from BabyCenter’s analysis.
Muhammad went from No. 620 in 2000 to No. 345 in 2018, according to Social Security Administration’s data.
If they combined different spellings (e.g. Mohammad, Mohammed and Muhammad) in its count, the name would rank higher still.
Although the nation’s favorite monikers have more or less remained the same since 2018, there has been a rise in Arabic names in 2019.
This year, Muhammad and Aaliyah have replaced Mason and Layla placing tenth on the coveted list.
In 2018 and 2017, Muhammad came in at No.14 on Baby Center’s list with a 29 percent jump in popularity this year.
