The Social Security Administration is holding on to the results of baby names for 2019 and has yet been determined as to when the lists will be revealed.  The delay is due to the COVID-19 pandemic and done out of respect and honor for those affected by the pandemic.

But, that doesn't mean we can't take a look through their records of what they have already published to see what names were popular, when they were popular and where, and more specifically which states, certain names were most popular.

It's interesting to look at this list and think of all the people you know named Jessica born between 1980 and 1985.  That's because it was the most popular name during those years.  Next up was Ashley from 1986 to 1992.  How many Ashleys do you know were born between those years?  Probably a couple.

In more recent years, Maine has embraced names like Jacob, Madison and Emma but when did they become popular and what took their places as number one in the 2010's?
