The most popular baby names of 2020 saw some repeats from the previous year.

According to a new report from the Social Security Administration, Liam, Noah and Oliver continue to be the top three monikers for boys, and for baby girls, 2019 holdovers Olivia, Emma and Ava still take the cake.

Liam has been the most-used boy name since 2017 when it took the top spot from Noah, which now sits at No. 2. This is the second year for Olivia to reign, taking the honor in 2019 from Emma, which had a five-year streak.

Different from 2019, Henry and Alexander have entered the top 10, displacing Mason and Ethan; on the girls list, the 10 names are the same, just with a fluctuation in order of popularity.

See the top 10 names of 2020 listed below.
