The United States Social Security Administration released their annual list of the most popular baby names in the United States. I have a love, hate relationship with lists like this.

 

Mainly, my name never makes it on these lists anymore...but, was one time largely popular. Everyone knows someone my age named Ashley. Wondering if your name or kid's name made it on this list? Or, maybe you're looking for name inspiration. Check out the list below!
