The Washington State Department of Health says parents are becoming more “creative” than in decades past.

Before we spill the list of top ten baby names from the latest data,  the DOH says less than half of the most popular boys baby names from three decades ago remain on the top 100 list, and only about 1/3 of girls names. Such staples as John, David, Thomas and others are gone from the top ten. Angela, Whitney, Sally, Rebecca and other common girls names not there anymore either.
