10 Most Popular Girl's Names


Your daughter can join the ranks of the Coppolas and the Lorens if you choose to go with the second most popular girls name from 2011, according to the Social Security Administration. The name Sophia was fairly popular in the late 1800s in the United States before dying off a great deal in the 1930s and 40s. But since the early 1990s, this name, meaning "wisdom" in Greek, has boomed big time. You can go with the formal Sophia or shorten to Sophie if you like.
