SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- A popular parenting website said the top baby names of 2015 were Sophia and Jackson, the same names that headlined the list last year.

BabyCenter said its poll of website users found Sophia was the most popular female name for the sixth consecutive year, while Jackson topped the male list for the third year in a row.

The website said Madelyn, which made its first appearance on the list last year, was booted from the top 10 this year by Madison.

The top 10 list for boys contained all of the same names as last year, but Jacob fell to the No. 10 spot while Logan rose to No. 9.

The top 10 girls' names for 2015 were:

1. Sophia

2. Emma

3. Olivia

4. Ava

5. Mia

6. Isabella

7. Zoe

8. Lily

9. Emily

10. Madison

The top boys' names cited by BabyCenter were:

1. Jackson

2. Aiden

3. Liam

4. Lucas

5. Noah

6. Mason

7. Ethan

8. Caden

9. Logan

10. Jacob

"Our data shows that the top 10 list stays relatively stable for three to five years. Sophia has been a powerhouse for six years, thanks to the variety of spelling options and the multi-ethnic, multi-language appeal of the name. I predict Jackson's popularity will be more fleeting. We'll likely have a new number-one boys' name next year," said Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global editor-in-chief.
