Popular Baby Names of 2012

The new list is out! Nothing has drastically changed on top... Jacob and Sophia are still #1. But there are some interesting things beyond the top for sure!

My fellow name enthusiasts have pushed out a ton of great analyses and there are several articles already out there, so I thought I would share some here:
