The Social Security Administration has released its list of most popular baby names for 2012.

Last year for girls, the most popular names are Sophia, Emma, Isabella and Olivia. For the boys it's Jacob, Mason, Ethan and Noah.

Jacob has been stayed at the top of the list for boys since 1999. Sophia has been the top name for girls since it overtook Isabella in 2010. Liam found its way onto the top ten list this year, while the classic Elizabeth came back into the top ten, possibly because of Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee.

The top trending names that had the highest jump in popularity in 2012 are Major (for boys) and Arya/Aria for girls.
