Traditional baby names rule in 2015

by -


Sioux City, IA-- What’s in a name? If you ask parents of little ones born in the last year, they might tell you it’s all about tradition. At UnityPoint Health - St. Luke’s, traditional baby names reigned supreme in 2015.   

At St. Luke’s, Evelyn was the top girl’s name in 2015. Alternate spellings of the name also included Evlyn and Evalyn. The name beat out Mia, last year’s frontrunner.  Other popular girls’ names included Zoey, Mia, Emma, Sophia, Emily, Andrea, Charlotte, Elizabeth, and Isabelle.

In the boys’ department, Jaxon took the top spot with some parents choosing alternate spellings including Jaxson, Jackson, and Jaxin. Other names included Liam, Noah, Henry, Hudson, Alexander, Mason, Ryker, Brandon, and Daniel. The name Carter, which was one of the top names in 2014, missed the cut of most popular names this year. 

While traditional names ruled the list of most popular newborn names, it’s hard to miss the more creative and unique names given to some Siouxland newborns. Some of the more creative girls’ names included Lennon, Margarita, Myrical and Mystiq. For the boys, unique names such as Fenway, Callaway, Hendrix, Madden, Rowdy and Tab were given.

 Each year, approximately 2,000 babies are born at St. Luke’s, making the hospital families’ number one choice for childbirth in Siouxland.
