The Social Security Administration has released its lists of the most popular baby names for babies born in 2012.
So, which names graced the most birth certificates in the Show-Me State last year?
Jacob and Sophia were tops nationally in 2012. 436 "Masons" and 469 "Emmas" were born in Missouri last year.
Mason and Emma have been the top names in Missouri for two years - back in 2010, Jacob and Isabella were the winners.
What about in the Land of Lincoln?
Illinois stuck to the national trend in 2012 with Jacob as the top male name and Sophia as the favorite for females.
Where does your name or those of your children sit on the Top 100 list? Are they on it at all? Find out.
I was curious so I checked it out. My name, Kelsey, is pretty far off the 2012 charts at number 267.
