Big News from Social Security Administration

Never fear, your tax dollars are hard at work!  This morning, the U.S. Social Security Administration announced some big news: the most popular baby names for 2011.  Jacob topped the list for boys, while Sophia topped the list for girls.  The official press release has the glorious details

This is the thirteenth year in a row Jacob tops our list for boys and the first year for Sophia, who knocks Isabella to number two after a two-year stint at the top of our list for girls. There is only one new name in the top 10 on either list this year. Mason rocketed to number two from outside of the top ten to replace Anthony on the boys’ side. 

As one astute observer noted, the most popular name inWashingtonis should be “Waste.”
