The Social Security Administration just announced the most popular baby names in Arkansas for last year. No big changes or surprises. Pop culture has a big impact on baby names and it looks like parents are still in love with the same movies and celebrities from last year.

The top five boys and girls names for 2015 in Arkansas were:

Boys:                                        Girls:
1)  William                                 1) Emma
2)  Elijah                                    2) Olivia
3)  Mason                                  3) Ava
4)  Noah                                    4) Isabelle
5)  James                                  5) Harper

Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner of Social Security, announced last week that Noah and Emma were the most popular baby names in the U.S.  How does Arkansas compare to the rest of the country? Check out Social Security’s website to see the top national baby names for 2015.

For future parents who need some inspiration and help with naming their baby, Social Security is unveiling a new baby names quiz at Social Security Matters. At the blog, people can find information on retirement, disability, and survivors benefits, online services, and much more. As she does each year, Acting Commissioner Colvin encourages everyone to visit the agency’s website, have fun with the baby names list, and create a my Social Security account. It is a personalized online account that people can use beginning in their working years and continuing throughout the time they receive Social Security benefits.
