Kids these days! They sound like they could be the heroes and heroines of Victorian novels, or residents of New York City.

Check out the whole list here.

Two names we were surprised to find lower, but still on, the list: London (the 23rd most popular name for girls) and Brooklyn (63rd for girls), when neither Alexandria nor Bethesda, nor even Washington, made the list at all.
