Thinking up a name for a little one on the way?

  • "Aziel," which means "God is my strength," has zoomed in popularity in Texas over the last decade.

Zoom in: Coming in third place in trendiness? "Luka" — maybe thanks to Dallas Mavericks fans.

Meanwhile: "Jase," "Alexa" and "Kendra" saw the largest declines.

  • No surprise on that second one, given some parents' desire to avoid accidentally triggering their Amazon smart gadgets.

Reality check: Aziel isn't one of the top 100 names in popularity in Texas in 2023, per data from the Social Security Administration.

Behind the scenes: Emma, Olivia, Camila, Mia and Isabella were the top five girls' names in Texas last year and Liam, Noah, Mateo, Santiago and Sebastian the top five boys' names.
