Yesterday I posted about the top baby names of this decade, but even more interesting is the The Social Security Administration's huge list of the most popular baby names of the entire past century. That's a lot of baby names to categorize. The list includes baby names handed out from 1911 to 2010, and offers the 5 most popular names for both baby boys and baby girls born in each of the years of the last century. Can you guess which two names held the top spot most often for boys and for girls? Take a guess before you skip to the next page to see the winners... Most popular baby boy name of the century: Over the last 100 years, Michael has held the top spot most often (44 times), for baby boys. Most popular baby girl name of the century: Mary has ranked number one 45 times over the last 100 years, making it the most popular baby girl name. Did you guess right? I had a feeling that Michael or Jacob might hit top spot for the boys, but had no clue about the girl's name. Mary was surprising to me. + See the entire list of most popular baby names of the century.
