Sorry, Liam and Olivia. Two others once again topped the list of most popular baby names in Ohio last year.

By the numbers: Oliver was first overall with 600 newborn boys sharing that name, per the Social Security Administration.

  • Charlotte was the No. 1 girl name at 510 babies.

The big picture: These are popular names everywhere, it seems.

  • Oliver was also first in 12 other states, while Charlotte was first in 20 other states.

Mr. and Ms. Irrelevant: Adam and Emersyn barely made the Ohio lists, each at No. 100.

  • Alissa's son's name, Elliott, did not crack the list.
