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.
