Most Popular Baby Names

     Social Security has released its annual list of the most popular names given babies. Here it is:

Boys:
  1. Jacob
  2. Mason
  3. William
  4. Jayden
  5. Noah
  6. Michael
  7. Ethan
  8. Alexander
  9. Aiden
  10. Daniel
Girls:
  1. Sophia
  2. Isabella
  3. Emma
  4. Olivia
  5. Ava
  6. Emily
  7. Abigail
  8. Madison
  9. Mia
  10. Chloe
      It's interesting how many of the names come from the Old Testament: Jacob, Noah, Michael, Ethan, Daniel, Abigail, and Chloe by my quick review. I don't think any of the names come from the New Testament. Is there some meaning in the relative unpopularity of Mary, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Peter, Paul, etc.?

     Update: Actually, Chloe is a New Testament name. 1 Corinthians 1:11.

    Another waste of taxpayers' money, and another yawn.

    Maybe it's because none of the TV vampires or reality stars have been given New Testament names.

    Alexander is in the New Testament, but was a bad guy.
