Favorite NAME COMBINATIONS Taken from the 2012 Most Popular Names List

by JB

The list of most popular names for babies in 2012 just won't cut it with southern mothers. Moms from south of the Mason Dixon Line aren't (usually) happy shouting out a single name; we love our double names.

2012 Most Popular Southern Double Baby Names List

I thought that (just for fun) we could work on creating double name combinations using only the names on the most popular 2012 baby names list and come up with some new double southern baby names!

I came up with several nice combinations using the top five most popular baby girl names on the Social Security Administration list: Sophia, Emma, Isabella, Olivia and Ava as well as the most popular names for boys: Jacob, Mason, Ethan, Noah and William.

To make it interesting I also put together a few using the "up and coming" male and female names on the list.

Fast Rising Names for Girls

Fast rising? Seriously? Is anybody else craving a biscuit made with Martha White self-rising flour right now?

Ok, the top five most popular, fastest rising baby names for girls last year were Arya, Perla, Catalina, Elisa and Raelyn and the winners in this category for boys would be: Major, Gael, Jase, Messiah and Brantley.

To give us even more choices, here's the complete list with MY favorite combinations to the side:

2014 and 2015 Most Popular Baby Names
by: Anonymous

I predict that the most popular baby names for 2014 and the most popular baby names for 2015 will be practically identical to the ones on the 2012 list.

The same ones are on there year after year.
