The Social Security Administration recently released its list of most popular baby names across the country and in each state, and so we thought we’d share Utah’s most popular names.

  • Utah’s names fit a more traditional mold, without too many controversial or surprising names jumping out.
  • The data is strictly from Social Security card application data.
  • Here’s the breakdown by boys and girls:

What’s most interesting about these lists is that they don’t feature the common Utah name stereotype of including an extra “g” or “i” or “e” in the name.
