Emma and Noah again top the list of the most popular baby names in the United States.
This is the third year in a row that Emma is the top name. It's followed by Olivia, Ava, Sophia, Isabella, Mia, Charlotte, Abigail, Emily and Harper. So, the higher the number, the less popular the name.
Rounding out the top 10 list of baby boys' names in 2016 were Liam, William, Mason, James, Benjamin, Jacob, Michael, Elijah and Ethan.
The most popular baby names in 2015 in NY were Liam and Olivia.
Names enjoying the biggest surge in popularity were Kylo, Creed, Benicio, Adonis and Fox for boys and Kehlani, Royalty, Saoirse, Ophelia and Aitana for girls.
The names on the list aren't particularly surprising. For girls, it was Kehlani, as in Kehlani Parrish, a singer and songwriter nominated for a Grammy in 2016.
