Geisinger Announces Top Baby Names of 2015

DANVILLE, PA -- Every year, websites and the Social Security Administration (SSA) present lists of the trendiest baby names in the nation. But what about locally? This year, Geisinger Health System (GHS) tabulated the most popular names of the more than 4,000 babies delivered at its hospitals throughout 2015.

Adalynn earned the top spot for girls, followed by Emma. Meanwhile, Jackson was the winning moniker for boys by a landslide. Forty-nine baby boys were named variations of Jackson, while the second-place boy name, Liam, occurred only 29 times.
