Hello, again, Emma and Noah. For the second year in a row, those two are the most-popular baby names in the United States, according to the annual list of names released by the Social Security Administration.

The new list is for the most-popular names given to babies born in 2015.

For both boys and girls, there were few changes from 2014.

On the girls list, Madison fell off the Top 10, to be replaced by Harper, which was #11 in 2014.

On the boys list, Daniel lost his place in the Top 10, replaced by Benjamin, which had been #12.

The top-ranked girls names for 2015 in order: Emma, Olivia, Sophia, Ava, Isabella, Mia, Abigail, Emily, Charlotte and Harper.

The top-ranked boys names in order: Noah, Liam, Mason, Jacob, William, Ethan, James, Alexander, Michael and Benjamin.

The most-popular baby names in by state might be somewhat different than the nation as a whole. But will know for sure when the agency releases state baby-name data on May 12.
