Sophia among NYC's most popular baby names
Michael Bloomberg seems to have lost popularity in one department: His first name isnt the most popular one for male babies in the city for the first time in more than 50 years.
Isabella, Sophia and Daniel are the most popular names for New York City's babies, according to the Health Department's annual list from birth certificates issued in 2007. Michael, the top name for boy babies since 1956, slipped to third.
Officials say Isabella and Sophia tied as the top girl's name among Hispanic, white and Asian families. Kayla reigns with black and Hispanic parents and Fiona is a new favorite for Asian girls.
Jayden was the top choice of boy's names among black and Hispanic parents. Daniel is the favorite for whites, Hispanics and Asian families. And William has joined the list as a top choice for Asian families.
And there are always some parents who enjoy being different and named their daughters Unique and Miracle. For boys, the list of unusual names included Achilles, Phoenix, Orion and Wolf.
"Sophia" is one of the top names for baby girls.
