Noah sailed past Jacob to become the most popular baby name for boys in 2013, ending Jacob's 14-year run at the top. Sophia was the most popular baby name for girls for the third straight year.
The Social Security Administration announced the most popular baby names Friday. Noah was followed by Liam, Jacob, Mason and William. Sophia was followed by Emma, Olivia, Isabella and Ava.
The most popular baby names aren't nearly as popular as they used to be.
A little more than 18,000 babies born last year were named Noah. In 1950, when James was No. 1, more than 86,000 newborns got that name.
About 21,000 newborns were named Sophia last year. In 1950, more than 80,000 were named Linda.
