The Top 23 Most Popularly Viewed Baby Names of 2013

According to one of the leading U.S. baby name websites, that is.

The list below may seem more obscure than the traditional Social Security baby name lists. These are in fact aggregated in real time, as they are viewed directly from their website, according to Nameberry.

Keep in mind these are the most popularly VIEWED. It doesn’t mean that new parents are naming their precious babes some of these unusual monikers. Although…only time will tell.
