There were a couple of new entries for Wyoming’s most common baby names in 2020. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
Vital Statistics Services, part of the Wyoming Department of Health, released the most common names for newborns last year and there were some shifts in the names parents chose for their babies in 2020. Department of Health Public Information Officer Kim Deti tells us the top five names for newborn girls last year.
Deti said the longtime popular name Emma dropped out of the top five last year. As far as the most common names for boys in 2020?
Deti said the number of births among Wyoming residents continued the significant downward trend that has existed for several years with 6,127 in 2020 compared with 6,567 in 2019. The high over the past decade was in 2015 with 7,716 resident births.
