Note: Starting in the year 2003, our baby name lists have captured the true popularity of each name by combining names that sound the same but have multiple spellings (like Aden, Aiden, and Ayden). Our pre-2003 baby name lists come from data gathered by the U.S. Social Security Administration, which counts each spelling separately.
