Social Security Releases Most Popular Baby Names Of 2018
Girl #10: Evelyn
Some people might be raising their eyebrows at this one. I know what they’re likely thinking, “Isn’t ‘Evelyn’ a grandma name?” It would have probably been more expected to see the name on most popular baby names of 1943 as opposed to the most popular baby names of 2018 list.
