Spectrum Health Announces Top 10 Baby Names for 2013
“Emma” and “Liam” remain No. 1 for most popular names for girls and boys for the second year in a row, according to Spectrum Health’s Top 10 Baby Names lists for 2013.
This year saw little change to the girls’ list from last year. The same names from 2012 made the 2013 list, with only “Charlotte” a newcomer. However, there are seven new boys’ names on that list for this year, with only “Liam,” “Gabriel” and “Noah” returning from 2012.
The Family Birthplace at Butterworth Hospital delivers more babies than any other hospital in Michigan with 7,372 births in its fiscal year 2013. Of that total, 3,637 were girls and 3,735 were boys.
