    Many Mias and Noahs were born in the San Diego region last year, making those names the most popular baby names locally, according to health officials.

    The San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) released its list of the most popular baby names in our county for 2015 and, according to the stats, 276 Mias and 239 Noahs made their way into the world last year.

    The HHSA records all births and deaths in the region and officials say more than 45,000 babies were born in San Diego County in 2015.

    Using those records, the HHSA says the top 10 names for baby girls in San Diego are, in order:

    San Diego’s top baby names for 2015 fall in line with a list of top baby names across the U.S. released by BabyCenter in December 2015. That list was compiled from data provided by 340,000 parents who shared their baby’s name with the BabyCenter website last year.

    BabyCenter’s data pulled these names, in order, as the top 10 for baby girls: Sophia; Emma; Olivia; Ava; Mia; Isabella; Zoe; Lily; Emily; Madison.

    For boy names, via BabyCenter’s data, these ones ranked in the top 10: Jackson; Aiden; Liam; Lucas; Noah; Mason; Ethan; Caden; Logan; Jacob.

    Typically, an official government list of top baby names for the prior year is released around Mother’s Day by the Social Security Administration.
