Emily had a stranglehold on the number one girl name for 12 years. Today there is a new queen of the kingdom: Emma.

Emma debuted in the top 10 in 2002, the same year that Jennifer Aniston’s character on “Friends” gave the name to her TV show baby. In the latest lineup, Emma was followed by Isabella, Emily, Madison and Ava.

Jacob is the top boys’ name for the 10th straight year. Jacob was followed by Michael, Ethan, Joshua and Daniel.
