Each year, HealthPartners releases a list of the 10 most popular baby names of the year in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.

How are they able to determine the most popular names? As they mention on their website, HealthPartners' birth center teams "help deliver nearly 10,000 babies at [their] organization’s nine hospitals and surrounding areas." So yeah, I think they're qualified to put together this list!

Before we hop into this year's top ten, here are some of the top names from past years:

2019 top boy name: Oliver
2019 top girl name: Amelia
2018 top boy name: Lincoln
2018 top girl name: Emma
