Based on the birth announcements printed in the Republican Eagle, here are the names that area parents favored the most during the last year.
Patrick and Mason tied for first on the list of top boy names as each was used three times. Every one of those babies still has a unique name, however, because all six middle names were different — Oliver, Steven, Michael, Carl, Vincent and Zachary.
Quite a few names were used twice for local boys, such as Calvin, Colton, Carson/Karsen, Griffin, Knox/Nox, Logan and Noah.
Parents showed less favoritism toward one specific female name as a handful of different options tied with only two uses apiece. They include MacKenzie/Mckenzie, Miah/Mya, Peyton/Payton and Sophia.
Daelyn, Ebba, Jaysa, Kinsley, Lyra, Savea and Starlette were just a few of those that were exclusive to one newborn.More from around the web
