DENVER (KDVR) — This is the time of year when lists are released showing the top baby names. Over the last few years, Olivia has been the most popular name for females and Liam has been the most popular name for males, according to the Social Security Administration.
BabyCenter put together a new list of names in danger of disappearing in 2023.
“BabyCenter’s State of Baby Names initiative has identified and analyzed the most popular baby names for 18 years, beginning in 2004.

From there, we looked at which names saw the steepest year-over-year declines,” BabyCenter shared.
