Most popular baby names for boys in New Mexico

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

Liam has been the most popular boy name in the United States for the last five years, while Noah, Oliver, Elijah, and James 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.
