The Social Security Administration has just released the most popular baby names in Texas for 2011.  Jacob  and Sophia  hit the number one spot this year.  My mom would be interested in the rest of the list.  She made some pretty good name decisions back when my sister and I were born.  Both of our names Daniel and Emily, even 30 or more years later topped the list.

The top five boys and girls names for 2011 in Texas were:

Boys: Girls:

1) Jacob                                   1) Sophia

2) Jayden                                 2) Isabella

3) Daniel                                 3) Emma

4) Jose                                     4) Mia

5) David                                  5) Emily


But that is just Texas.  How do we compare to the rest of the country? Check out Social Security’s website -- -- to see the top baby names for 2011 from all the states.
