Top Baby Names In Minnesota And Wisconsin For 2022
When people are picking a name for their child, they want to pick something that gets respect, gives personality, and fits their child.
Choosing a name can be difficult, it has become even harder because there are so many more options for character names, musicians, and sports heroes. I hear all kinds of new names pop up, and new spellings of old names.
The more I see new names the more the classic names seem to be near the top of the list every year, especially in Minnesota and the midwest. Names.org published the Most Popular Baby Names In Minnesota for 2022 based on Social Security Administration data for births and user interest.
Number one for boys is a classic name, Henry. (I suppose you could call him Hank.) According to Names.org, 6 of the top 10 Minnesota names are also in the top 10 nationally.
