  1. Sophia
  2. Emma
  3. Olivia
  4. Isabella
  5. Ava

And for boys:

  1. Aiden
  2. Jackson

BabyCenter's naming survey also found that, for 20% of parents, "uniqueness" is the quality valued most in a name, the Huffington Post reports. If that applies to you, you might want to check out the rest of the top 100 for each gender, so you know what not to name your baby.

Such puritan names for the girls. Obviously not their "stage" names.
