2018 is already half over, and Baby Center is looking at the top 100 names so far. They use data from parents who report their newborn's names. 

It's an early look at 2018's official hottest names. The U.S. government doesn't release their list until 2019. 

Here are the top 15 names. Are you surprised by any of them? 

The list has shifted some. Last year, the top girl's name was Sophia, which has dropped all the way to number five. Likewise, last year's top boy name has also dropped. In 2017, it was Jackson, which is as number 12. 

This year's top names—so far—came up from number 3 and number 2 respectively.
