These are the most popular baby names in Houston for 2022
Houstonians who are expecting soon and perhaps are looking for baby names might take a nod from the Houston Health Department for inspiration.
The department announced Houston's most popular baby names of 2022; some 62,000 babies were born in Houston this year.
At the top are Liam, Noah, Mateo, Emma, Olivia, and Camila, according to the health department.
Liam is at the top of the list for baby boys, followed by Noah in second place, records maintained by the department's Bureau of Vital Statistics show. The name Mateo has taken the third spot since 2019.
This year, the name Emma took the top spot, beating out Olivia, the most popular name for girls the last three years. Camila dropped to third place for 2022 after finishing second in 2021.
Other girl names that make up the top 10 list for 2022 are Mia, Isabella, Sophia, Sofia, Ava, Amelia, and Charlotte. The same girl names also made it to the top 10 list in 2021 and 2020 but swapped different rankings, according to Houston Health Department.
