Most popular baby names for girls in Massachusetts

Stacker compiled a list of the most popular baby names for girls in Massachusetts using data from the Social Security Administration. Names are ranked by the number of babies born in Massachusetts in 2021.

Olivia is currently the most popular girl name in the United States while Emma, Charlotte, Amelia, and Ava round out the top five.

Note: The Social Security Administration collects data on baby names with a binary understanding of sex and gender. Stacker understands that names aren't inherently gendered and will continue to look for opportunities in our coverage to demonstrate that.
