WASHINGTON, May 7 (UPI) -- The U.S. Social Security Administration said Jacob was the top baby boy name for the 11th year in a row in 2009 while Isabella took the top position for girls.

The administration said Ethan took the second spot among boys, followed by Michael, Alexander, William, Joshua, Daniel, Jayden, Noah and Anthony. Jayden and Noah were new to the list this year, officials said.

Emma, last year's top name for girls, was No. 2 on this year's list, followed by Olivia, Sophia, Ava, Emily, Madison, Abigail, Chloe and Mia. The officials said Mia was new to this year's Top 10.

The administration released a statement from "Baby Jacob" and "Baby Isabella" thanking U.S. residents for their "support and good taste."
