100 Most Popular Baby Names in Georgia (Updated for 2022)

In this section of the site we have data on the most popular baby names since records began in 1910 to the most recent data in 2022. These names are taken directly from the Social Security card applications for births that occurred in the United States.

The table below shows the top 100 most popular baby names for the latest year, 2022, with a total count for the number of births registered with that given name.

You might be wondering why we don't have data for the current year, 2024. This is because the Social Security Administration who collect the data have to first verify it and safeguard privacy. Data from the previous year is released around May each year.
