Popular baby names of 2011

The Social Security Administration released today its list of the most popular baby names of 2011. After nabbing the top spot for two years in a row, Isabella is no longer the most popular baby girl name. Find out which feminine name reigns supreme. As far as the top baby boy name, let’s just say a certain reality star may have influenced the top 10 list this year. Check out the top 100 baby girl names and baby boy names here!

Each year the Social Security Administration releases a list of the most popular baby names of the year, compiled from birth certificates of U.S. babies. For the 13th year in row, Jacob remains the most popular baby boy name in America. There have been some changes on the boy list, however, as Anthony got kicked off the top 10 and the name Mason shot up to number two. The name was number 12 last year, but perhaps the popularity of Kourtney Kardashian, who named her son Mason, may have influenced the climb in popularity.

For the girls, there is a new No. 1! Isabella has been the top baby girl name for two years in a row, but this year Sophia nabs the top spot.

The baby names that have jumped in popularity the most in 2011 are Brantley and Iker for boys and Briella and Angelique for girls.

Without further ado, check out the most popular baby names for 2011:
