These Maps Show The Most Popular Baby Names In Every State –
Whenever family or friends of mine visit from overseas, they marvel at just how huge the United States is.
I mean, come on. Just look at the size of this bad boy superimposed over Europe.
Texas alone can fit several European nations in it.
So it only makes sense that regions of the USA are vastly different from each other. Heck, even different states that border each other are different in terms of food, culture, customs, popular interests, and language. I mean, people don’t say “ya’ll” up in New Jersey, nor could I find a single person in Texas who knew what a “hoagie” was.
But as it turns out, we’re not that different after all from state to state, especially when it comes to baby names. In fact, we’re pretty darn unoriginal; just look at the Social Security Administration’s map of most popular baby names from state to state to see what I’m talking about.
