Jacob and Sophia top the list of most popular American baby names, again.

It's Jacob's 14th straight year at the top. It was followed by Mason, Ethan, Noah and William.

For the girls, Sophia leads the way followed by Emma, Isabella, Olivia and Ava. It's the second year for Sophia at the top.

The Social Security Administration lists the top 1,000 names each year, dating back to 1880.

And, among the fastest rising names among boys are King and Messiah, suggesting possibly high expectations from parents.
