Despite their popularity, the top five names still account for less than 5 percent of all babies born for each gender.
Some other names have made their way on Pennsylvania's list for the first time: Calliope, Lotus, Layken, Chyna and Daleyza on the girls list and Avian, Casper, Gus, Ruger and Zephaniah on the boys list. Each name occurred five times, the minimum number it takes to be added to the list.
Frieda Schmidt, a spokeswoman with Lancaster General's Women and Babies Hospital, told LNP Newspapers that the staff there has seen many approaches to naming babies. Some parents go with traditional names, she said, while others go with something more trendy and unusual.
