Most Popular Baby Names US - 2009

Choosing a baby name is a huge responsibility. You are choosing a word that your child will hear, see and read many times a day for their whole life. For this reason many parents go to great lengths to pick the perfect name for their child.

One of the best ways to start to investigate baby names is to buy a book and immediately create a list of possibles and a list of definite no's. This means that you start to create a shortlist which you can of course continue to add to later.

Sometimes it can be worth buying more than one book as the names that they contain can vary wildly. Also, different books can contain very different styles of names. Some people find that the perfect name for their child will be one that is very traditional, whilst others prefer something that is more unique and individual.

The most popular names lists are created each year from the lists of names selected by parents in each country. Below is the list of top 25 baby names from 2009 in the US. Some parents may like to use this to help them select names whilst other parents who want something unique may wish to check that their chosen name is not on the list. Whatever your motivation I hope that you find the following list useful.
