It's entirely possible Emma, Liam, Noah and Olivia will be in play groups and later classmates with your baby. That's because those were the most popular names of 2017 according to the U.S. Social Security Administration.

Liam earned the top spot for the first time. Emma has been the top baby girl's name for the past four years in a row.

Other popular boys names include: William, James, Logan, Benjamin and Mason. For girls it was Ava, Isabella, Sophia, Mia and Charlotte. That's also true for popular names in the Quad Cities.

Personally, in the Quad Cities it seems like I've heard more than a few babies named, Silas, Jaxon, Beckett,  Harper, Edie and Avana. I think all of those names are pretty cute!
