Baby Center, the apparent authority on all baby names, surveyed some 500,000 parents and found that the most popular baby names are...not that original. At least not compared with celebrity baby names. Or the most popular baby names of 2013.

Because they’re the exact same.

The most popular boy's name of 2014 is Jackson, followed by Aiden and Liam in the no. 2 and no. 3 spots, respectively. Same top three as 2013. The most popular girls names are Sophia, Emma, and Olivia. Also the same as 2013.
