Top 100 Baby Names of 2006

- Top 100 names of 2006: "In 2006, Emma and Aiden were still holding court, although in 2005 parents preferred Aiden spelled with -an. Meanwhile, seven newcomers entered the Top 100. For girls, Aubrey, Juliana, Maggie, and the intriguing Nevaeh — heaven spelled backward — made the list; for boys, Brody, Miles, and Peyton rose into view.

What's on the way out? Bailey and Makayla are falling fast for girls, and for boys, Julian plummeted 17 spots to #95, so it may heading for the exit."

    Keep in mind that these are not the "real" top baby names, which are freely available from the Social Security Administration's "Popular Names" webpage. These are simply a list of "favorites" from visitors to a single website. If you look at the Social Security site, you'll see that Aidan (and Aiden) barely crack the top 50 list. They are nowhere near the top ten.
