Social Security Releases Most Popular Baby Names Of 2018
Boy #5: Oliver
We had Olivia on the girls’ side so it is fitting that we have the male version, Oliver, on the boys’ side of the most popular baby names of 2018. It is a common last name, but it works just as well as a first name. According to Babble, the name came to England courtesy of the Normans and it was a spin on the French “Olivier.” Besides the aforementioned link to olive trees it is more abstractedly known for peacefulness — and what parent doesn’t pray for that in a baby? Some people might also be suckers for the nickname Olly.
