Popular Baby Names of 2005

popular-baby-names-of-2005.jpgWhen you think about names for your new baby, there are lots of things to consider. Do you want a unique baby name, one that not many other kids will have, or do you want a more traditional or more popular baby name?

Naming your baby is a very important piece of pregnancy and parenthood. The name you give your baby is the name that in most cases he or she will have until the day they die, the name they will have to live with whether it is popular and trendy, old fashioned and classy, or just different and odd. Your babies name is the first permanent decision that is made for your child, before he is old enough to make decisions on his own.

In terms of popular baby names, there are not many changes between 2004 and 2005 in a report recently released by the Social Security Administration. The top two names for girls and the top seven names for boys remained unchanged, which is not a big surprise.

Review this list of the 20 most popular baby names for 2005 to see if there is a name you just can’t live without, or a name you hadn’t thought of that jumps out at you.

There are no wrong or right baby names. Most of the time a parent will know the name for their baby when they hear it because it will make some sort of impact on them, or will make them feel happy and excited. A name is something that is chosen quickly, or it may take time. Ultimately it is a personal decision that should be made by the parents and not altered because of opinions from family and friends or society in general.
