Top Baby Names in Wisconsin in 2016

When I was pregnant, I remember pouring over baby name lists! Finding the most perfect baby name became a challenge, and a stress! Did it have a good nick name? What about the initials? Would they forever be known as Sarah R (the most popular name when I was a kid); always having to be referred to as their last initial because there were too many in the class? Side note” My daughters class of 13 kids, has two girls named Talia. So, even when it isn’t the most popular name on the list, you can still end up with another child with the same name.

I thought I’d do a quick search to find out what the most popular names in Wisconsin were for 2016. Here are the top 25 names for boys and girls in Wisconsin. If you are interested in seeing the full list, you can do so here.
