List of top NYC baby names

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

Isabella and Jayden are the most popular baby names in New York City for the third year in a row.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg released the list of baby names Wednesday. He said 123,029 babies were born in the city in 2011, down 1.4% from 2010.

The Health Department's birth certificates showed that more than 600 Isabellas and more than 800 Jaydens were born in the city in 2011.

It takes several months to compile the list of most popular names because many birth certificates are initially filed without names and are updated later.

Nine of the top 10 girls' names for 2011 were holdovers from 2010, with Sarah dipping to number 11 and Sofia joining the list, up from 16 to number 10. Among boys, "A" names gained traction with Alexander back in the top 10 after getting bumped off two years ago and Aiden reemerged in spot 9 after years of dwindling popularity.  Michael and Matthew also jumped up two spots to positions 5 and 6, respectively, while Joseph and Joshua slid to spots 13 and 14.
